THE CHALKMAN SIGNS is a traditional by-hand sign painting company located in London.


Started by Australian hand lettering artist and sign writer Oliver Miller, the team now includes Freya Rowland.


We aim to facilitate an enriched engagement between your business and people. From Restaurants and bars to office murals and house numbers we have worked in gold leaf for an extravagant Art Deco bar to chalk menus for an outdoor theatre.

Our ethos is underpinned by drawing and practice in all of our processes, believing that it is the fundamental key that sets us apart. A passion for the craft and a variety of skills mean we can work across a range of media and styles. We cannot deny the extraordinary influence of technology and strive to synthesise the best of the old and new worlds.

Hand painted signs are more versatile to individual spaces, vinyl can offer only a limited palette and it is often too 'perfect' whereas paint offers an almost unlimited scope for colour and textural modification. Each site is different, the light in each space is different,  It is these small things that add up to a far better customer experience.
