Jeff Canham is...
an artist, designer, sign painter, and amateur woodworker based in San Francisco.
He grew up in Hawaii, studied graphic design at the University of Oregon, and afterward became the Art Director of Surfer magazine in Southern California. In 2005 he moved to the Bay Area and began apprenticing at New Bohemia Signs where he learned the traditional art of sign painting. With a BFA in graphic design and a very unofficial degree in hand lettering from New Bohemia, his colorful typographic compositions combine both new and old techniques.
He currently works out of a studio space in San Francisco's Outer Sunset district called Woodshop.
