Creature Feature No 8

Oh what a joyful sign! Morph the word 'vicarage' into 'Animal' and we've got a superb cover for Orwell's farmyard classic. And it does what it says on the sign, with a field of hens over the hedge scratching about being admired by a Kellogg's Corn Flakes box rooster. And if all that wasn't enough there's a cut-out pink pig on the ridge of a nearby barn roof and another little sign talking of Homemade Cakes. All that's brilliant about the English countryside in just a twenty yard stretch of road between Southwick and Bulwick in North East Northamptonshire. Quite possibly the best farm sign I've seen; cue Viv Stanshall's Jollity Farm.

'Regular as habit, the cock begins to crow...' Terrific. Why can't more farm signs be as good as this. The best I usually see is a smile-inducing allusion to 'farmer's own seed'.

Why can't more farms be like this, rather than the ghastly factory farms.

A super Farm sign - simple and attractive. As someone who made signs for a living for nearly forty years, I am impressed.

From the graphic design standpoint, the best farm sign I have ever seen. But my favourite slogan is still a sign I spotted in the West Country back in the 70's - "Our Cows are Outstanding in their Field!"

Peter Ashley said...

I think we should go on about Outstanding Signs. I'll kick off with the two cut-out painters carrying a ladder for Hall's Distemper (no model railway complete without one) and You're Now In Strong Country (or something like that), accompanied by a Brian Cook-style illustration for the Hampshire brewer.

say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Maybe you could space it out better?
