Outside the Library with the Sunsphere creeping and some sage advice about the local press. STC gets funky here and form their letters out of arrows. A remarkable specimen of government stencil flair.

At last! Finally Wiley gets to get his! The satisfaction from this sign can last a man a lifetime.
Three different types of type with two awesome cartoon characters. Surround that out with vanity bulbs and you can see why Harby's Pizza & Deli on Broadway has just set the gold standard for all the posts to come.
Excuse me now while I go get these two tattooed on my bicep...
Signage in the Knoxville area, specifically. From hand painted letters in the heyday of the old sign-painters to the terribly designed over photoshopped vinyl signs of today's modern billboards were going to cover it all. How about handmade adverts and obscurely posted PSAs and posters?
Oh yeah, there's a home for that here.
Trucks and vans with the message on the sides? Yes for sure.
Hand-scrawled graffiti along drainage ditches? But of course!
There's a place for it all at Knox Flair! If its out there, we want it to be on here.
From the good to the bad to the bizarre. From Magnolia Ave to Chapman Highway, up and down Broadway and Central, to Kingston pike and beyond, were on the hunt to make visible those good street visuals. We reserve the right to repost and retrace our tracks when we want to. But there's just so much out there we just want to get it started. So now you know our stated goals here, lets bring it into focus.
Welcome to Knoxville.
