Graphic design – it’s all in the detail

You know how it is sometimes you are out and about and you see a poster that is up and you notice a mistake. Well, last Friday afternoon I was out and about in the seaside town of Bangor, County Down and spotted the sign below.

Spot the mistake

It is obvious that the designer is trying to make out that the words are on a banner wrapped round the back of the box surround. However, have the small triangle on the left hand side of the top part of the ‘banner’ showing it going round the back, is also on the bottom right of the lower part of the banner. It really should be on the top of this bit. It’s all in the detail.

Oops.

The arrow shows the triangle that should be above not below this box (and should also be flipped vertically too!)
