One of my favourite signs in the city is a Toronto Hydro Electric System sign whose appearance changes with the position of the sun. The cast shadows of the letters add interest to what is otherwise a simple and straightforward sign.

This sign for Nadège, a pastry shop next to Trinity Bellwoods Park, operates in a similar fashion. The letters and the row of shapes beneath look spare and elegant; they’re enlivened by the shifting design they make on the wall supporting them.
