Go-Go Gas Bar

Go-Go Gas Bar

This is one of those signs that can get caught in your brain like a pop song. Maybe it’s the contrast between the manic energy of “Go-Go” and the angular seriousness of “Gas Bar.” Or is it the network of cracks, adding an anxious undertone to the sign’s graphic punch?

This sign reminds me of the curious images in David Lynch movies: it offers an innocuous first impression, combined with something foreboding.
