Have You Seen The Signs?
Art has always been a part of our daily lives to the point we never notice it anymore. When you step out into the street, you see street signs, advertisments, posters, tarpaulins and so much more – art used for commercial, but art nonetheless.
We want to take a step back and appreciate art used every day. From how street and safety signs have come to be, to the people behind it, to the way graphic designers change the way we see the market. The articles we write – and the ones our contributors send us – provide our readers with this knowledge.
Marcie works at the comfort of her own home (and occasionally a coworking space) as a freelance graphic designer. In the last eleven years, one of her major clients is her local government office, providing eye-catching posters and bulletins. She is currently working on a project to re-do her community’s signs to make them more effective and prevent more roadside accidents.
She likes to write about signs and symbols, how they came to be, and how they can be improved in the present.
Gregory majored in advertising and, thanks to his skills in graphic design, now works in an advertising and PR firm, making the social media captions and posters. Each of his projects is a carefully-thought piece of art, even if it is for profit.
Having been in the industry for over seven years, Gregory shares thoughtful insights and tips to help people starting out or freelancers looking to find stable positions.
