Henry Sign Painter

 

The Henry Sign Painter project started out as a side project. Together with Willem Verweijen, we had been looking at the signs for a long time and decided to find out what or who's behind it.

I learned that when you have a big passion for something it's easy to spend a lot of free time on it. And there are most likely people who share the same passion and want to listen to your story. 

It all started with the idea to make a publication. But we went on and made a movie, zine, shop and website.

Once all was set up, we were contacted by the Volkskrant. After they published the interview, everything went viral. Numerous media (both national and international) picked it up and shared the story.

Amongst them were SBS6, Radio 538, VPRO, Vormplatform and we were invited to do a presentation at the Graphic Design Festival in Breda.
