Following on from my previous post, this is to show that although not ‘quite’ on the same scale as Las Vegas, you can see some funky sign designs in this country in good old Blackpool. I haven’t been there for years and years (childhood holidays) so it was nice to go back. There’s been lots of investment on the seafront and it was great to see lots of new public art (unfortunately other areas of town aren’t looking too great). The highlight was the comedy carpet, a huge typography based mosaic design celebrating British comedy… apparently it contains over 160,000 granite letters. I spent quite a bit of time reading and tittering at the quotes and jokes.
