A little bit of everything

October 26th, 2014, 4pm

It was 27.8°C. The breeze was light.

There are a bunch of things I love about this sign. Sure, the letters are of varying weights, the weight of the H is unbalanced, and the N has an extra serif on the bottom right that makes it reversible (if you rotate it 180 degrees it looks exactly the same), but the things that are wonky are consistently wonky. It’s also clear that someone put a lot of thought into the sign. It takes up the entire side of the small building, the colors are the same as the New Orleans Saints, the local football team, and they’ve even added the fleur-de-lis which is a widely used symbol in the city. There is pride in this sign and what it lacks in typographic refinement it makes up for with sincerity.
