Sign Painters’ Reprise
Will Lynes of Lynes & Co. at work on his promo mural for the film screening of Sign Painters.

Five years ago, Sign Painters was published. The following year the film was released and went on to influence thousands around the world as screenings were held far and wide. The London screenings in February 2014 were something of a ‘launch’ for Better Letters, although we were officially founded the year before.

The film has since been made available via DVD and streaming. The accompanying website now features a page of images that showcases the graphic work that was done to promote its earlier public screenings. Here’s a small selection.
