paul price: signs of affection

Here’s a quick bit of afternoon eye candy: colorful “Signs of Affection” from graphic designer Paul Price. Wandering by one of these on a cold afternoon sure would be a cheerful surprise. I’m hoping Paul’s work somehow makes it over to the gray Brooklyn streets in my area, so I can stumble upon “Your Hair Looks Dashing.” That would totally make any bad day feel like it was taking a turn for the better.

  20. Those truly are so lovely. Paul’s “signs of affection” is such a thoughtful project.

    Yeah this is almost exactly Steve Powers(Espo) Philadelphia love letters mural projects. Same idea, same retro fonts.

  22. Paul Price says:

    Sadly not the same idea or typography at all. I discovered his work after beginning this project.
