This is for real, the saga continues...

This might look like a big joke but its for real. The continuing saga of kitsch regional brands and identities being rolled out across France.
Yes, they look like a time warp to the 1970's. Yes, they are of appalling typographic and graphic execution. Yes, they are cheap - depriving the regional creative agencies of work and the opportunity to professionally  promote their departments and regions. What a disaster and waste of the limited budgets that have been invested in them. A laughing stock and a lesson in what not to do in branding!

Japan - France and trains

In Japan 'Women Only' subway trains. In France No Women allowed on trains...

No women on SNCF trains?!

Bizarre sign at Austerlitz station Paris. Apparently no women are permitted to travel on trains now!... I dont get it.
