Oh Shirt

I really don’t want to be mean, but I pass this sign all the time, and it repeatedly strikes me as both hard on the eyes and impossible to comprehend when passing at forty miles per hour. Each time, I absorb just enough to ascertain that it belongs to a graphic design company.

Unfortunately, my comprehension ends there, as my brain immediately becomes preoccupied with trying to determine why a graphic design company would give themselves a bent-looking, cluttered, barely readable sign done in such an uninviting color scheme.

It’s like giving someone a job application filled out in full-sized Marks-A-Lot.

Or do I go too far?

    As a person who has occasionally designed graphics I will say that not only did you not go far enough but that this is an extremely common sight possibly even more so than the perfectly talented painter/photographer with an insanely-gaude-at-best webpage cliche.

    Seriously these people work with t-shirts ALL DAY LONG, yet they don’t seem to know what one looks like?? Tiny sleeves and head-hole almost the same size as the torso?? Do they only print on shirts for people with Jim Henson puppet anatomy??

      Thanks! Somehow I suspect that you will cause me more traffic than I will cause you.
