Sign of the Times

What could be more impressive in graphic design than the many illuminated advertisings at night. In Hong Kong they are even a kind of tourist attraction.

Today I found an article in the web that in Cincinnati exists the American Sign Museum. It opened in 2005 as an non-profit museum and shows an selection of the 300 signs. About 2,000 people visit annually. The response has been good enough that the museum will open in a new site late this year or in early 2009. The new property will initially more than triple the current space and provide 28-foot-high ceilings to accommodate larger signs.
