Turns out road painters write without the use of a stencil. "I could see them moving down the road painting some other road signs, and knew there was supposed to be a BUS STOP sign in that spot, so I set the tripod and camera up and waited for them to start," says Tom Williams, the graphic designer who filmed it. "They block out the area of each letter pretty roughly as you can see," writes Williams, "then just freehand within that. No stencilling."
