Clever interpretation is always awesome, and I never know where I’ll find it. Here are some of the signs, images, and labels that have captured my imagination lately.
This week: old trees, trolleys, and gin.
Strassenbahn, Freiburg, Germany: Everything is a work of art, from the paintings to the people in the frames to the passengers framed by the windows above.
Cathedral, Strasbourg, France: Simple, to the point, and effective.
Park, Schluchsee, Germany: The text may be dense, but the simple wooden frame covered in lichen is charming and completely appropriate for the setting.
Hairdresser, Freiburg, Germany: Street marketing with a mirror. How’s your hair looking today?
Basel, Switzerland: In the window of a liquor store: an infographic on how to make gin.
Freiburg, Germany: “Creating Digital Flavour.” What a description.
