STUDIO VIBE

Many students tell me they come to the NGS studio because of the passion they feel coming off these pages. That’s cool and and yep passion seems to be an indelible character of what we do here.

We’ve created proper sign writing courses that feeds learners’ ambitions, that focus on glossy hot styles and razor sharp brush control techniques: often the most important first choices for new signwriters and things we value here, because they build solid careers via good vibesl, vision and skills.

IMPROVEMENT HAPPENS FAST!

It’s all brush passion and party time in the studio people!

This program is process based and well bench-marked out. The emphasize is on high detailing and solid mechanics but yep passion and brush fun always outs!

The result, with such a positive studio vibe?… confidence, understanding and rapid progress!

As much as I’d like to appear more academic blah blah we are always driven by the quest for that perfect brush stroke and the desire to build great sign artists. Besides who’d want to see this craft die and the teaching policy here is completely equal and open… a bit of passion goes a long weyhey!

SHARP CORNERS - CLEAN SHAPES - STRONG DESIGN

Constantly seeking to improve our game, we’ve done a pretty good job so far, introducing over 500 global artists to this craft with many going on to professional full-time practice.

We train all for ‘quality first’, using purely traditional processes and some tremendously useful NGS production techniques including some ingenious sharp corner building tricks, NGS super-flow enamel mixes and clean stroke techniques.

YOUR VERY ANALOGUE LEARNING OPTIONS

If you are looking to escape the computer and enjoy ‘by hand’ creativity then join us on a weekend course and start a great new analogue journey.

For those of you wanting a full immersion experience take a look at our 5 day and flexible 15 day Apprenticeship programs which also run all year.

Look forward to joining you on the brush soon!

Success Stories

Rachel Joy Lettering

Rachel Joy Lettering

An absolutely brilliant introduction in a welcoming environment and exactly what I hoped it would be.

I was very nervous about picking up a brush and instead the time flew by and I learnt a huge amount.

Rachel Joy Lettering

It’s great that you’re teaching this properly and passing your knowledge on.

Thank you so much for all your training Nick. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Signwriting Jack

I can't believe my luck when I get to say I am a full-time signwriter myself 3 years later. I still have so much to learn, but I wouldn't be where I am without Nick's guidance and support.

Signwriting by Dawn

What I got out of Signsmiths, was knowledge, confidence, skills, support and new pals.
I'm now working full time as a sign painter and chalkboard writer.
