Applauding Good Signage

Not too recently the Pan American Lofts got the signage repainted on its northern face. While I may not be entirely sold on the ground-floor paint, I love this signage.

The execution of the signage is simple. It has yellow lettering with a black outline against the building's tan paint. Everything about it says history.

I don't have a picture, but I have the same love for the signage on the Douglas Building. Simple, black, and very reflective of the building's age.

I give both buildings A+ grades on these two efforts.
