Subliminal Signage

marvel

Here is the first of two great signs that do a little ‘borrowing’ into the brand loyalty of others. This one is a true landmark in an area near where I grew up. If you were not thinking, you might call the place Marvel – like the comics. But that big soft ice cream cone makes you realize that around these parts the name rhymes with Carvel. (I wonder if they sell a pudgy the whale cake).

This next one just kills me. They even have the FedEx affiliation. “Hey hon, be right back, I am going down to the Blinko’s to make some copies.”

Got to give them both credit for some clever naming. I am sure that there are some brand police out there who would get a kick out of this.
