Jun 02, 2010 Signage
On the right, a good example of well crafted hand painted signage. It’s obviously clear that you’re hanging a left on the next corner of 60th. The typography has been given great care, with the use of condensed faces, ample tracking and superscripting for the “TH”. The “PARK” word itself acts as a billboard, and tries to grab a drivers attention.
On the left, a white on black (typically harder to read) sign with terribly distorted characters, a really confusing street direction, and a phone number which nobody will write down. Monthly space is important to New Yorkers, but not so important for that percentage of a sign, which is supposed to attract you to park right now.
Found right near this Day & Meyer sign.
