Jason Chapin’s sign industry experience began at age 11, in his father’s sign shop. John Chapin was a sign painter and pinstriper, and young Jason grew up around the business—learning lettering and layout on the way. As technology made its way into the sign industry, Jason was able to use it to enhance his traditional sign design skills. He’s now 50, so it’s been 39 years of sign making. Here’s what he told SignCraft.com about his work and his business, Purifeyed Branding & Design:

I was blessed to work with my dad and learn traditional sign layout principles. He was a lefty but I’m right-handed, so he was always making sure I got to watch right-handed sign painters at work. We participated in quite a few Letterhead gatherings where I was able to absorb what I saw being done by many of the industry’s best.
