When your professional life revolves around creating and supplying superb signs, you can’t help but notice signs which are just a bit unusual.

Hair salon sign that makes a statement with a question

How about this hairdresser with an unusually long and evocative name?

Ooooh Girl who did your Hair SALON

Cheese shop A-board sign pays tribute to an ‘80s classic

This is from Cheeses shop in Muswell Hill, London.

Read the words and you can almost hear the music:

Sweet dreams are made of Cheese

Who am I to diss a Brie?

I Cheddar the world and the Feta cheese

Everybody’s looking for Stilton


If the lyrics haven’t already triggered your own memories, then ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’ was a huge 1980s hit for Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart as the Eurythmics.


Absurd sign: Access all areas – or not?

This metallic wall-mounted sign is a great example of what not to put on your sign.

To paraphrase it:

If you can’t open the door then you can’t come in!

It seems more than a little absurd that this message needs a sign at all.

You can’t help feeling there must be more to it.  Could sensitive lab tests be underway requiring a climate controlled environment with a timelock on the door?
