Design history is all around us.

One of the things I love about Durham is how we collectively have done a reasonably good job of not trashing everything old. Much of the wonderful brick history of the city is still here, and more and more is getting repurposed every year.  As a branding agency in Durham, we applaud that.

A subset of old buildings is old signs. There are dozens (more?) of businesses that have been in place for decades and generations, and old, beautiful signs abound. I’ve always wanted to do a picture essay about them, but for now here are a few that I’ve seen and I like. I’ll keep putting them up.

Ping me back if there’s one you like you think I should go look at…
