Vintage, rustic, signage is something to call us all back to our roots. It pulls us back to a time when all work was a means to an end. Rough, rugged, and functional, it managed to put its point across.

This sign shows its wear. It's all about function. It means what it says and says what it means. We know what this modern building does. And we do not need to press #1 and talk to a machine to find out the function. In some ways, vintage signage is more... human.
