Street Signs and Logos

Posted in Uncategorized by emmanichols on October 10, 2008

“Someone had taken a series of photographs of busy streets and then painstakingly removed all the logos, symbols, signs, colours, street names and road markings”

Examples of this can be found on Gregor Graf’s website under the “Hidden Town” link

We have also found examples of the opposite that produce a similar effect by Chicago based artist Matt SiberFloating Logos. By removing the poles, similar to the removal of the signs all together, it highlights the way graphic design is everywhere.
