"My name is Marissa Cianciulli and I am a Sign Painter based out of Philadelphia, PA.
I own a Sign Painting and Design Shop called Super Signs, located in the heart of South Philly. Super Signs is one of the first Women-Owned and operated sign shops specializing in the trade of Hand-Painted Signs.
Working from a private studio and storefront, we specialize in several mediums, ranging from Sign Painting, graphic design, vinyl, vehicle lettering, airbrushing, pin striping, large scale murals, and much more. We have a very bright eye catching store front and keep the traditional "Walk-In's Welcome" services.
Being self taught in the art of hand-lettering & new to owning my own business, it took endless amounts of time and effort to get fully established and to the point in where I am at today. With a background and previous clientele in Graphic Design and as an Art Director for multiple music venues, it surely put me in the path to expanding and offering multiple services.
I get most of my inspiration from the legendary Ed Roth, 1960's motorcycle culture, and vintage ghost signage seen on old buildings. I like to stick with the classic & traditional look. I have a true passion for vintage anything & everything. I am not prone to doing things like most other people do, before ever driving a car, the first vehicle I have ever owned was my 1982 Harley Davidson Ironhead, which I purchased almost seven years ago. Typically, saying I tend to do things the complicated way is an understatement.
After the Ironhead, I essentially started collecting vehicles. Next came a 1971 Chevy C10 pickup truck. Then, an 80s Power Ram. And now the most recent member, a late 70s Chevy van project.
Not only do I have a love for vintage vehicles but my everyday life is executing vintage style advertisement like they used to.
My number one priority will always be my shop and working for my clients. As far as my other interests and hobbies.... My #1 roll dog, Milly Chinchilly, who is always by my side. When I get some free time, I typically indulge in some red wine, rap music, and the company of my closest friends. My goals as an artist and business owner are to never lose this motivation, meet deadlines, & make every single client happy.
The tank I created for the Babes Ride Out Raffle I wanted to keep very simple, clean, traditional, and reflect the old school Speedball Harley Davidson badge. I included a little bit of everything I use here at Super Signs into the tank. Airbrushing, painting, design, vinyl, striping, etc.
I'm really flattered that I was presented in the idea of putting together a tank for the raffle. This feels like one of the best ways to contribute to Babes Ride Out. I hope to see a bad ass lil babe ripping around with the tank I created."
