Bad Design: Brain Child


Brain Child Sign

This sign was discovered lurking in the parking lot outside the Varsity Community Centre. Perhaps fitting for a frightening child psychology experiment involving rusty metal forceps and electroshock therapy, this sign sends all the wrong messages. The threatening, messy text is reminiscent of monster filled nightmares involving moaning apparitions of fifth grade math equations. The colour combination is much better suited for hawking hot dog condiments rather than serving up summer school and the lettering sets a questionable standard in legibility.

This sign was affixed to a bike rack with a metal chain to prevent theft from two possible groups, either a scheming evil mastermind or ironically, un-educated hooligans, both with cruel intentions.
