Over the last 10 years I’ve been visually inspired by hand painted lettering. I began shooting while living in Brooklyn, New York 2001-2008. This obsession lead me to travel and shoot in other locations including, France, Mexico, Los Angeles, Oklahoma, Austin, New Orleans, Miami and Memphis.

After contemplating the collection I was accumulating, I decided , a collaborative image database could serve the type and design community as a source of inspiration for new typefaces, or just eye candy for the type obsessed.

Designing typefaces for Stereo Type Haus in 2003, designer and typographer RD Granados became increasingly obsessed with the energy and idiosyncratic quality of hand-painted signage in and around Brooklyn, New York. Six years later, after a series of road trips inspired by Ed Fella’s Letters on America, TypArchive was born in 2009.

What began as a personal appreciation for hand lettering and vernacular typography has now transformed into a collaborative image archive with global contributors.
