The craft of sign making is steeped in tradition. Early forms of signs were developed using pictograms partly due to a total lack of literacy. Universal symbols were created, which still find their use today, in order to mark the establishment offering a particular trade or service.
The notion of using a giant boot outside a cobbler’s shop or a pair of over-sized eyeglasses to mark an optometrist’s store is still quite relevant. Although today the aesthetics of branding and marketing play a greater role than in the past.
While hand-carving, -lettering and -layout has given way to computer-controlled routing , digital printers and layout software, many sign makers still rely on traditional skills and techniques for their craft. So, while many methods and products have evolved, the essence of sign-making is still very simple; communication based on legibility and clarity.
