Power to the Proverb

Vanessa Power is a Dubliner who, in her own words, put down her mouse and picked up a brush, having worked as a designer for five years before setting up her business, Signs of Power

Power is responsible for styling some of the capital's finest road frontage, such as Proper Order, Scoop and Sprout.

Her stint as Artist in Residence at the Grand Canal Dock offices of Facebook Dublin saw her undertake the project entitled 'So to Speak'. Working with the Dublin Facebook staff, who have 74 languages between them, over 50 proverbs (with their English translations) were selected to be celebrated on a mural. The result is a beautiful tribute to the proud diversity of the Dublin office.

Seeing infinite possibilities in each letter, Signs of Power's passion for the traditional craft of hand lettering shines through her work. You won't regret following her Instagram adventures.
