Roadliners

Roadliners is a film about inspiration and craft, and the uncelebrated typographers of the road. With filmmakers Pretend Lovers we documented a day in the life of Glasgow roadliner Thomas ‘Tam’ Lilley.

While looking for inspiration for O Street’s new brand we stumbled on a typographer whose work was uniquely relevant to our company—one whose work embodied the values we hold dear: honesty, beauty, humility, and intelligence.

Butcher Billy

Butcher Billy + Bukowski + Lichtenstein = The Pop Art Series!

From Butcher Billy: “Legend has it Butcher Billy once sat in a bar with Charles Bukowski and Roy Lichtenstein. This unusual and totally awesome cosmic gathering defied the time space continuum and almost destroyed the entire universe. That plus a huge hangover in the next day. But the result is a series that clashes two dimensions ruled by distinct evil geniuses overlords and strangely gives birth to an all new, all dangerous zone – a land of deeply troubled thoughts portrayed in bold strokes and bright colors..”

The Misplaced Series removes notable New York buildings from their surroundings and “misplaces” them in desolate landscapes around the world.
Concrete behemoths and steel-and-glass towers rise from sand dunes and rocky cliffs, inviting viewers to see them as if for the first time. Out of context, architectural forms become more pronounced and easily understood. Each image is accompanied by a vignette, a flight of fancy that enhances the overall sense of absurdity, mystery, and humor. They are like scenes from a movie never made, fitting companions to images that could never actually be.
