It wasn’t long after Raychel O’Donoghue first went to work in a sign shop in 1985 that she decided that she wanted to be a sign painter. Computers were not yet heavily involved in the industry, and she wanted to learn to hand letter. Raychel went on to attend the Butera School of Art in Boston to learn the trade. After school, she moved to Martha’s Vineyard for a while, then came back to the Boston area to open her own shop. SignCraft spoke with her between projects on a busy afternoon:

It’s been a busy 25 years or so. I have a nice shop with two garage bays, and one part-time helper and lots of amazing subcontractors. I design and finish the signs, but I don’t actually build a lot of them. I do the designs and oversee the projects.
