About Me

Welcome! I am a sign painter based in Sheffield, offering high quality hand-painted signage to homes and businesses throughout the UK.

The art and craft of signwriting has deep roots in our culture and it is an exciting time to be involved in it's revival. I help facilitate the need for an alternative option to the bland mass-produced computer generated signage that is common place in our public spaces today.

If you are considering utilising hand lettering to give your business that wow factor it deserves, then feel free to get in touch to discuss the options available for your budget. I can paint onto most surfaces including brick, textured rendering, timber and glass.

Whether it is a shop front sign to represent your brand for years to come, or fine gold gilding to adorn your shop windows or fascia, I can offer you an individual solution for your project or business. If you are also considering utilising hand lettering for your branding I can provide you with a logotype.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my work and if you have any questions or would like a free quotation, then please get in touch.

Russ Young.

Client Comments

" We engaged the services of The Sign Artist for the opening of our new shop Walton Herbs. The level of service has been excellent, the attention to detail superb and the customer care top notch. We would highly recommend, without reservation, The Sign Artist to any business seeking personal attention, craftsmanship and skill for their branding and signs.” 

Sandra Carlon, Manager, Walton Herbs, Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Beautiful work. Russ worked closely with us to come up with a design that was perfect for our needs and we're utterly delighted with it. Highly recommended.

Robyn James, Nether Edge Herbarium, Sheffield.

“A friend of ours put us in touch with Russ after walking past a sign he was painting in the Antiques Quarter. He sorted us out with a whole variety of signage that makes us really stand out on Abbeydale road.”

Roy Pemberton, Four Corners Canteen, Sheffield
