Cheesed Cake Sans Serif

Worst Sign/Graphic Design

Guest Post from Elwrongo

What to do when the pang for cheesecake arrives untimely on a balmy suburban night? Follow the signs of course! Such artistry will surely lead you to the pudding of your dreams…

In some ways Elwrongo’s submission avoids the main pitfalls of hand drawn signs, massive serifs, and letters that become smaller as the writer realises the words won’t fit. But yes, a sanitised professional sign is preferred with foodstuffs I think. Thanks El wronged one. Keep’em coming -And lay off the cheescake.

    Nah!
    If the the kitchen is uncluttered as the signage there’s a good chance that it it also simply as clean and, like the sign, the ingredients used are without unnecessary additives.
    Such simple honesty is a rare commodity, so I can understand your skepticism LA; but maybe it is as simple as WYSIWYG.

    Could be, could be. Perhaps they could branch out into “Mothers Home Kerned Signs”?

    Ok, Celia, but do you have a nomination for worst socialite? You seem to hate them all. I cannot bring myself to pay money for the sunday times to comment more specifically. If I can get a copy for free, i’ll comment more specifically.

    somehow i’m not sure this sign can be trusted at all. quite aside from whether it’s promised cheesecakes/ cheese &/or cakes were prepared in a sanitary kitchen any time this century, the non-commital diagnally downward slanting posture makes the sign look as lost as the confused and hungry souls it proposes to aid.

    This is not a sign for us – it is a sign for cheese cakes.

    O-o-ops! It’s the [i]images[/i] that lean to the left; the pic (camera) is rotated clockwise. Silly me :O
    (But ElW must be over compensating in his stance)

    Just a note of clairification, this part of Welshpool has a distinct and noticeable tilt, especially around 8pm in the earlier part of the week.

    I didn’t try the cheesecake but perhaps ought to in the interests of completeness.
