Simple and Clever

Darwin Bell's Sign Language project puts an interesting twist on urban signage and typography. Each piece contains a series of mounted Polaroid images, which are arranged to create witty, cliché and somewhat nonsensical sayings. The whole project has a nice sense of humor, and it's obvious the artist has fun creating the work.

The site layout is decent and easy to navigate, and Bell has a large quantity of examples. My only complaint is the photography of the final work, it's inconsistent, sometimes blurry, catches too many reflections (or the flash), in short, it stinks. However, If you are able to look past the aforementioned shortcoming, the concept has loads of potential.
