I love the look of old wood and hand painted signs.
Having the chance to do this is scary and fun. You can’t really clean up the old wood and have it look right. A good eye, a steady hand.
Computer design is almost the complete opposite. You can make no mistakes that you can’t fix.
I was taught graphic design in the old school method. Board layouts with the font’s and all art pasted on the board with wax. I had just started to make a living with that skill when the computers took over and those skills became dead. I use all my hand eye micrometer on making sure the hand painted work comes out square and clean.
