Underground Style

Sadly, I don’t live in a place where great importance is placed on public transportation. As a result, I spend two hours of my day sitting alone in my car in hideous traffic. Not exactly awesome for the environment, or my sanity for that matter. To compensate for my commute and city’s lack of resources, I think a little “subway art” is in order. No, not THAT kind of art thank you very much. I’m talkin’ about signs. Subway signs in cool fonts featuring cities I am far, far away from. Cities with cool names including “park” or “beach.” Cities with better transportation. Not that I’m bitter. Happy Monday. Grrrr.

I love that subway sign set. I just saw several different ones on a site called subwaysigns.com. Too cool.
