Peter Blackman attended Butera School of Art of Boston, Massachusetts, in the early 1970s. It was the beginning of an ongoing 45-year career in the sign industry that includes graphics, hand lettering, pinstriping, airbrush work, gilding and logo designs.
After graduating, he formed a partnership with Graphic Design Associates, where the focus was interior and exterior graphics as well as product design. A few years later, he started Blackman Designs and began doing custom work for Federated Department Stores—Jordan Marsh, Macy’s and Bloomingdales stores— traveling the country.
