Other Signs Part 1

This gallery presents the collection of photos submitted for the World Of Signage Photo Contest1 by the readers of Smashing Magazine. We received over 2,500+ photos from our readers across the globe, and present a selection of the most interesting photos in the overview below.

The topic of this gallery is Other signs, i.e. all the assorted signs that do not expressly fit into one category or another. Please notice: each photo has a certain license, provided in the description of the photo. Before using the images for private or commercial projects, make sure that the license allows you to do so.

    I used to have a Carrot Sticks embroidery in my room, along with a matching Celery Stalks. I was living in a co-op and it came with the room. Very fun embroideries, I’d like to have a pair again! Great pictures by the way, I particularly like the “Creep Show” one.
