About

Transit Design was Born in Bed.

I created Transit Design one snowy morning while living in Northern Michigan. I was searching for an unusual piece of artwork for my home, and discovered that collectors were buying vintage subway art (also known as bus scrolls, subway signs, tram rolls, roll signs or transit signs) to frame and display.

As a graphic designer, I have long loved the beauty of typography. These vintage signs – with their unusual destinations and bold lettering on black canvas – appealed to me. I soon found that original bus scrolls were expensive and difficult to find so I decided to make my own. (Creating my own custom subway art with personalized destinations was more fun anyway!)

It occurred to me that if I wanted my own personalized bus scroll, that others would too, and Transit Design was born. Since that time, I have introduced more artwork – including travel posters, inspirational quotes and city art.

On a typical day, you’ll find me working on freelance design in my studio, making custom bus scrolls and signs, or dreaming up new ideas. Design is my passion and I think everyone deserves to be inspired by the things they have around them!

Frequently asked questions

Can I see a mock-up of my custom order before I pay?

No. Part of the fee for custom artwork includes my design time, so I do not create “mock-ups” of layouts prior to payment. However, you will receive a proof before printing and any adjustments can be made at that time. I have sold hundreds of custom orders and my customers have been very happy.

Can I order a different background or text color?

Yes. Simply contact me with your request. I can provide you with a link to color swatches if needed. Remember, colors on your computer monitor may look different when they are printed.

Can I order a different size or custom piece?

Yes. Contact me for pricing. Additional design/set-up fees may apply.

Can I choose another font or typeface?

Yes. I have several typestyles that I have chosen to reflect the look and feel of vintage bus scrolls and signs. I would be happy to work with you to create a piece that you love.

What's the difference between rolled and stretched canvas?

My canvases are available “rolled", “stretched", or "stretch yourself".

Most customers choose stretched - a ready to hang piece with gallery wrapped canvas edges stretched over a wood frame. The sides are the same color as the front.

There are instances where a rolled or stretch yourself canvas is more suitable: I do not ship stretched canvas internationally due to various factors; and some folks want to have their piece custom framed. “Rolled" canvas is trimmed to size and suitable for custom framing under glass. "Stretch Yourself" includes an extra 2 inch canvas border so that you can have it stretched by a local framer.
