Urban grit Newberg style part I

Inspired by my friend Eric's post of found typography, I rode my bike around Newberg looking for urban grit type. Pretty slim pickings compared to when I drove around Indianapolis with Eric, looking for cool old signs.

I found glory.

Sometimes stuff gets more interesting the less legible it becomes.

What little graffiti there is in Newberg is mostly sloppy tags; this is one of the few stencils I've seen.

Yes, we're open; be back soon!

Most signage in Newberg is boring and plastic. Plastic and vinyl doesn't age as beautifully as wood and paint and metal. This peeling vinyl letter is interesting, though.
