I spent 5 days in the Bay area last week and I want to share some of the inspiring things I saw. Starting out, here is a bunch of signage and little bits of design that stood out to me. It was really inspiring to see a lot of hand done work. A lot of places we went out to eat would have hand-written signs or store hours hand painted on the front door. It was refreshing and encouraging to see that it’s not always expensive or difficult to have well done, unique signage.


Here are some of my very favorites. More posts to come later this week on lighting, spaces and good food!


This was a neat little cafe we went a couple of times in Oakland. They had amazing art (I will post some of that later).






This was a really neat surf shop we went to in San Francisco near the beach. I loved the sign out front and the tshirts and poster they were selling.
