Love For Sale: Signs That Make Fun of Valentine’s Day

Annica Lydenberg is a designer based in New York. She has created some hand-lettered Valentine’s Day signs that comment on the commercial nature of the warm and cuddly holiday.

Lydenberg runs the small, Brooklyn-based design firm Dirty Bandits. It specializing in typography, lettering and illustration. Work done by Dirty Bandits is fueled by Annica’s deep obsession with type. As a graphic designer she has been paying close attention to typography for many years and focusing on treating letters and words as art. Annica has been known to be a doodler, do-gooder, design addict, downward dogger, designated drawer, and a dirty bandit.

Is Love For Sale?

The “Love for Sale” series was inspired by vintage store sign windows painting. Annica says, “For those of us 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.” [Source]
