With a background in multimedia and 3D design, Craig Winslow has spent the past few years building his own studio and creating interactive work for clients. His Kickstarter project, Projecting West, inspired his latest idea of recreating ghost signs across the U.S. using “Light Capsules” and historical references. 

In 2016, he became an Adobe Creative Resident and over the past year, travelled to locations across the US and UK to illuminate more than 30 ghost signs. The process involves taking pictures of faded ads, vectorizing the letterforms in Illustrator, animating the sign in After Effects and then projecting the image back onto the original wall with MadMapper.

On Saturday July 29, 2017, the Portland-based artist is coming north of the border to help shine a light on Winnipeg’s ghost signs. The one-night-only event called Painted in Light is happening from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. in Winnipeg’s Exchange District at five separate locations. You can learn more about the installation at
