Sign-spirational Sign Design | Duende by Madam ZoZo

All over the world, I have come across signs that made me stop and look twice. Beautiful typography, clever design, interesting logos, polished posters and/or artisan craftsmanship catch my designer’s eye. This pictorial series is an ode to the designers, signwriters, and makers who have created outstanding signs; a tribute to the typographers and graphic artists who make the world a prettier place by elevating advertisements, business names and information into art. The following collection of sign-spirational sign design showcases work in three dimensions. These signs have been illuminated, threaded, tiled, soldered and crafted into unique and interesting additions to city streetscapes from Cuba to Tokyo.

Madam ZoZo

Hi! I'm Madam ZoZo, aka Zoë, an Australian designer, creative consultant, blogger and digital nomad. I'm passionate about travel, design, dance and new experiences that fuel my creativity. I strive to travel in a style that is gentle on the earth and that contributes to the communities I visits, even if it is merely to take away a greater understanding of a different culture. Duende by Madam ZoZo, is where I share the stories of my travels and the duende (soul/inspiration) I find along the way.
