a pinboard in particular: window shopping.
by victoria comment


i thought i’d start something new around here — i call it a pinboard in particular. every other week, i’m going to challenge myself to create new pinterest boards that i hope inspire you, as well as myself. i find so many great ideas for pinboards on pinterest and i think it might be fun to share some ideas here. this week i’m sharing one i started called window shopping — it’s a look at great store fronts with some inspiring typefaces gracing their windows. sign painting is such a unique and somewhat lost art (but making a comeback) and i’m simply charmed by these windows.

what’s the most unique pinboard you’ve seen? do you have one that’s a little outside the box?

  1. I instagrammed a neat one Saturday night – my favorite music venue just opened a bar next door called Jalopy Tavern, and the window typeface is lovely. It’s even cooler that with the streetlights coming through the glass, the sign gets projected onto a blank space on the wall!

  2. Great idea Victoria! I’m looking forward to looking through all the lovely new pinboards you’ll create! This is wonderful though… my heart skips a beat everytime I see a beautiful bit of typography. What with the recent chalkboard trend I for one am very happy to see it returning to its advertising roots. You are so lucky to have such wonderful shops around you too :)

  3. Love this idea, Victoria!

    I have one question, can you maybe recommend any blogger meet ups here in San Francisco or any crafty workshops?
    We moved 7 month ago from Germany to San Francisco and I would like to get in touch with some like-minded folks. :)

    Thanks in advance!
