Love for Sale is an exhibition brought to you by Dirty Bandits inspired by the desire we all have for love. The typographic influence comes from old showcard sign painting once found in store windows and grocery stores advertising sales and specials. This seemed like just the style needed for a no-nonsense marketing campaign. For those who are single, these signs comprises a sales pitch highlighting well-honed skill sets, and the promise of romance with a witty edge. For those who are in a relationship these signs will keep the spirit alive.
The series includes hand painted aluminum signs using traditional sign painter’s 1 Shot, as well as screen printed posters, and small foil stamped prints. With backgrounds that are almost unbearably vibrant the visual sales pitch promises love that is both shocking and traditional, like the signs themselves. Some are sweet, some are dirty, some are just plain silly. Such is love.
