At the tram stop for the Children’s Hospital, the platform is filled with various cute “Dr. Jake” signs. I especially like transforming the transformer box into a height chart. Someone is thinking broadly about reframing the hospital from scary into welcoming and using the first point of entry – the tram stop – as the place to begin doing that.
Patience is a virtue. A post-design attempt to mollify confused users.
I could not figure out what the heck “Teady” referred to on this first truck. It wouldn’t be my first time encountering a word I didn’t understand (see “showbag” in an earlier post, say). But no, the adjacent truck says “Steady.” I went back and checked – did the initial S wear off? No, it was never there to begin with. The design – sans S – fits perfectly in the designated area on the first truck.
Bold language boldly presented.
Once again, weird people sculptures.
Free WiFi at the train station. Nice visual reference to many memes (e.g., Star Wars kid, the dancing baby, keyboard cat) as well as Facebook and Twitter.
ACDC lane. Yes, the official City of Melbourne lane commemorating ACDC.
Reminded me of a similar sign in San Francisco.
The menu at this restaurant offered beer in a pot or a beaker. I was further charmed by the use of familiar words with shifted meanings, as part of my foreigner’s journey. But no, the beaker is exactly what you’d think: a beaker.
More 8-bit-videogame streetart, although Mario instead of Space Invaders; stickers instead of tiles.
Many many flavors of hot chocolate at Chokolait. I must go back!
