When Handwritten Signs Go Awry

I posted recently about handwritten store signs. Sometimes the signs work, or can work. Then, there are other times. I returned to the same cafe that provided me the last sign. This sign, is not quite as good. It’s also not terrible, for instance I like the drawing of the coffee cup with arms and a face, oh and the steam is a nice touch.

Perhaps part of the problem is that the sign has had quite a bit of accidental erasing throughout the day. Anyway, as I said, it’s not a terrible sign, it could just be better.

I saw this earlier at a local cafe. This handwritten sign, a smaller version of a dry erase board, is pretty effective. The person who wrote this had a clear vision for what they wanted to say. They made this seem like a real conversation. They also did a nice job of presenting their preferred drink to the typical drink of choice. And a little social pressure never hurts, right?

With the exception of a little bit of accidental erasing, this sign looks good, with barely any room to spare. Have you seen other well written signs like this? If so, please share them with us at Steve @ this domain or on twitter, @ParkhurstGroup.
