I was sitting in a café on University Place and noticed this hilarious sign. YOU CAN’T UN-SHIT A FIRST IMPRESSION Even if you don’t have a fancy suit, we’ll make you look good on paper. The Resumé Hero Resumés and cover letters for real people who want super jobs. I found it ironic that the [Keep Reading…]
NO BLANKETS ALLOWED BLANKETS KILL GRASS Killjoy, man! Way to harsh my mellow. I just wanted to lie out in the park. I mean, thanks for giving me a reason why, but did you have to be so blunt? How about: “Blankets Hurt Grass.” I’d feel a lot better about that. Spotted at Washington Market [Keep Reading…]
I snapped this shot inside the spiffy public restroom at Madison Square Park. The restroom cleans itself after every use, a total water-and-soap spray-down of the entire space. So naturally, the toilet paper can’t be exposed — it would get soaked! Instead, it’s hidden behind a trap door. When you press the button, the metal [Keep Reading…]
While attending Smart Experience’s Web Navigation Design workshop with Jim Kalbach at the Center for Architecture, I noticed this great sign by the elevator: Burn Calories, Not Electricity Take the Stairs! Walking up the stairs just 2 minutes a day helps prevent weight gain. It also helps the environment. I did a little investigation and [Keep Reading…]
I was walking down the street with Dan Rollman of URDB and spotted the most perfect irony. I managed to get my camera out just in time; the dog looked at me just as I snapped the pic, then ran away. Wish I could remember what store it was so I could send them this. [Keep Reading…]

As I was walking down the jetway about to board an American Airlines flight from MIA to LGA, I noticed this sign mounted next to an employee phone. It’s amazing to me when people write questions on signs as though someone is going to answer them. Do they come back later to check? Well in [Keep Reading…]
Okay, so this isn’t really a Hebrew elevator. It’s in a building in San Francisco, actually the offices of Cooper Design. I took a course there two years ago and found these buttons to be so ridiculous I just had to take a pic. I call it a Hebrew elevator because the numbers are laid [Keep Reading…]
Consider the number of people that must have seen this sign before it was posted: the writer, the printer, the sign manufacturer, the installer, the building manager. And not one knows how to spell, or cared enough to fix the mistake. Amazing.
Orian got this hilarious survey in the mail and saved it for me cuz he knew I’d get a kick out of it. (He knows me so well!) I knew something was off immediately, but I had to stare at it for a moment before I could see what the heck was going on. Do [Keep Reading…]
