Another year over and another Offset, 5th one this year. So many amazing projects and ideas from very talented people. I’ve put together a few images from some of the stand out speakers for me. If you’ve never been to Offset before and like the stuff on this site you should give it a go next year if you get a chance.

Really great shot film by Taller Stories and Toe Jam with titles by Gianni on the rich history of painted signs in Ireland from dealing with the cold weather and constantly making sure the spelling is right. Maser, James Early Kevin Freeney and Kevin Freeney Jr. give their insight into their work and influences. If you like this sort of thing you should also watch the ‘Up There’ a short about sign painters in New York.
