“The computer is to graphic design what the microwave is to food.”
– Milton Glasner
Winnipeg is a city rich in vintage signage and hand-rendered typography, unparalleled in Western Canada. We somehow collectively understood the beauty in these old signs, whether faded paint on brick, or retro neon. We don’t paint over them. Long-standing businesses that could easily afford slick LED signs instead choose to preserve their 1950’s shop signs.
