hand rendered numbers

1Some of my favorite finds are when people decide to take typographic liberty. Here are two great examples of that. I came across this 20% off sign while walking around San Antonio right near The Alamo. In case you can’t tell, this is hand made using painter’s tape. That 2 is like nothing I have ever seen before. Like, EVER.
The hand painted numbers in Cincinnati started out, from what I can tell, with really good intentions and a lot of patience. It is obvious that it didn’t take long for both to wear off. Those poor numbers. Bless their hearts.
Here’s a picture taken across the street:3 See any great typographic finds in your city? Take a picture and tweet it to me @nikki_vz or email nikkivillagomez@gmail.com to be featured in an upcoming post.

  1. It’s like something traumatic (or alcoholic) happened halfway through painting the Ohio numbers. As for that 2 – it’s both outrageous and nonchalant at once! Great finds.
