I Saw this Sign


These photographs were taken on January 21, 2023 at 8:23 AM.


The location was in a neighborhood in Washington DC.


The "Take It!" came to me as I drove by this sign and it caught the corner of my eye for the first time. I had passed by this clever sign for years and for some reason had never seen it before. I think it was because it is located on the left side of the street for the direction I was taking - and setting myself up to be in position to make a right turn at the closely located next intersection. My focus was on my next move rather than be in a more random float mode.


Back to the shape of the sign being clever. That the saw blade is placed in a cut placed in the upright of the post holding the structure in display mode - is ingenious. Not being flashy - just seems to add to its allure.


I could only hope to someday see an exaggerated coping saw done up in the same fashion - as the sign for a Psychiatrist office. lol


Wishing everyone a great day,

    They need to give their marketing and design department a raise.

    This is genius. I bet that is an eye catcher, then you find yourself looking at the name of the company.

    Their motto should be "Cutting down the competition!"
