Alphabetics Anonymous were delighted to again be invited to paint a mural at The Letterhead’s Meet, an annual international sign writing convention held in a different capital city each year. The 2019 event, ‘Oportounity’ was hosted by The Lazy Dog Studio at ESAD Design School in Porto, Portugal. 


Intended to serve as an impactful Welcome / Goodbye statement for attendees of the Letterheads event, the mural also had to be suitable for permanent use post-Letterheads at the entrance to the University. 


The team worked collaboratively on the design and painting of the mural, using the concept of day and night scenes in the form of two sunrise and sunset landscapes, featuring landmark bridges in Porto city as a backdrop for the Welcome / Goodbye message, signwritten in Portuguese. A simple blue and white colour palette was used, mimicking the iconic ceramic glazed tiles seen across the city’s architecture.
