Description

Exploring the phenomena of vernacular, low-fidelity, and do-it-oneself shop signage, the Mabry type specimen is a typographic rumination on the age-old balance of Work and Life, Business and Pleasure, Home and Office. The specimen includes a handy storage envelope; a booklet that re-presents found instances of colloquial operational language; and a functioning OPEN / CLOSED flip-sign.
