I can’t remember a time I didn’t love signs. When I was 13 I painted one for a local hamburger joint, and was very proud of it. It featured a dead guy opening a casket with the word “Open” on the lid. They chose not to buy my sign. I couldn’t understand why. I sort of get why now.
I still love signs. Clever signs, artistic signs, awkward signs, misspelled signs…anything but boring ones. Here’s a gallery of fun, not-boring, signs (most of them intentionally so, a few unintentionally). Happy May!
