From construction to the G20 to Pride, the city has been a maze of detours and diversions lately. Part of the pleasure is encountering new signs everywhere. Sometimes a strange word on a strange surface can make me absurdly happy.

This is a ramp in front of a gas station, positioned to compensate for a torn up road surface. You may already know that I love stenciled type. Here the sound of “Kenco” (try saying it aloud now!) combined with the fact that the “C” and the “O” are rectangular results in a sign that gives more joy than an orange popsicle.

What’s the best sign you’ve seen so far this summer?
