Same Old Song: Do This, Don’t Do That, Can You Read The Sign

Same Old Song: Do This, Don’t Do That, Can You Read The Sign

Share

Inspired by Decaturish.com founder Dan Whisenhunt’s wildly popular sign ratings posts (you place them we face them) and the documentary film Sign Painters, I have been hyper-aware of the barrage of signs competing for our attention.

There's no bookstore at Medlock Plaza...

The signs for Melton’s App & Tap and Coin Laundry are well-maintained. Not so much for “Books”

This sign at Medlock Plaza, catty-corner to the Proposed Walmart development is a fine example of how a sign shouldn’t look. As we outgrow and renovate our aging shopping centers, an increased emphasis needs to be placed on the aesthetics of signage in our community. After all, we’re the ones that have to look at them.

I discovered this film about sign painting via Smile Politely.

I want your feedback. Who has the best signage in town? Who has the worst? What value should we put into “artistic merit”?
