‘Tis the Season for Yard SIgns

This is one of the best political yard signs I’ve ever seen. 1. I can read it from far away, so it does the candidate justice (pun intended). 2. The designer took some liberty to make it unique by making it diamond shaped. 3. That is the funniest political candidate “name” ever!

Too many signs I see are so over designed. Non-traditional colors, fonts that have no business on a sign and design elements that just aren’t needed. Often sign design can over thinking the message…keeping it simple helps the reader remember what they saw, especially if they’re just driving by.

Designers, do yourself and your client, friend, candidate or whoever hired you, a favor. ‘Name’ real big and office they’re running for…that’s it! Make it readable from 50 feet and make it obvious it’s an election sign, so even if a remote possibility that a remodeling company decided to put their sign in with the others, your sign does its job.
