New Bohemia, SF
After meeting the owner Damon Styer at an AIGA meeting in San Francisco, we had a chance to visit his signpainting shop New Bohemia Signs – one of the longest running sign shop in San Francisco, dealing exclusively in hand painted signs.
Located in 281 9th Street in the South of Market neighborood, New Bohemia is a beautiful sight for any letterform lover, with its wall covered in commercial signs side by side with pieces that were created by Damon for its own art shows.

“Practice is a part of it, but so is having good supplies, the right brushes, a smooth enough board, and paint that’s going to coat in one shot” – Damon Styer, quoted in the book Sign Painters by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon.
