Clipart on Signage

It’s not unusual to see businesses include pictures of the products they sell on their signage. Often, those pictures are some form of clipart, or at least in the vein of clipart.

I think it’s important that a sign’s clipart be A) attractive, and B) consistent.

Otherwise you get an organic, mis-matched top hat with your worm-infested frozen yogurt.

You think they sold that one sandwich yet?

Regardless, neither of these signs can hold a candle to this magnificent, franken-font, sign-as-catalog beauty:

I know, I know. It’s like the double rainbow of signage.

Speaking of which, I saw a double rainbow on a recent drive across the country. This was in New Mexico. Sadly, only one of them went “all the way.”

And since today is apparently all about bonus images... Mangy wiener dog in a hat and sunglasses:
