These poorly designed signs are bloody brilliant
If there’s one thing your English teacher should have taught you, it’s that clear communication is bloody everything. Yeah, nah, it doesn’t matter if you can’t tell an adverb from an adjective or analyse the s**t out of a boring old text about rich English people. What does matter, though, is that you can say what you mean. That s**t’s doubly important for signs that are supposed to convey information quickly. Yeah, nah, that’s Sign-Design 101. Unfortunately, that s**t doesn’t always work…
Yeah, nah, don’t get us wrong, we reckon most signs are pretty straightforward. The ones in this story, though, are a bit skewiff. And look, if we’re hyper critical of ourselves, we recognise that some of these signs might have been deliberately made that way by someone with a sense of humour…but they still just communicate the wrong thing.
And, we have to say it, we’re not sure if it’s because we’ve got dirty minds or not, but it just seems like some of these signs are communicating stuff that’s a little bit on the naughty side. If you know what we mean.
Take the ‘low sodium’ one for example. It’s nice to know, but does it really have to look like…well, a big ol’ custard-chucker in the throes of chucking custard? The same can be said for old mate’s sweet spot. We’re sure it’s great, but…you know, there are kids who are gonna see that.
Of course, they’re not all dirty. Some are just poorly advised. And that’s okay. It happens. Someone somewhere must have thought the SMNOKINOG one looked great. As for the Panda Garden, we can’t help but feel Google could’ve solved that one.
Final thought: Anyway, bad signs are everywhere. So, with that in mind, share some of your favourites in the comments section. See you there, you big bloody bewdiful d**kheads!
