Here at Visual Solutions we specialize in signs that work to get your point across. The best sign in the world fails if you don’t have a reason to see it and once seen pay attention to it. Sometimes that attention is there because it has to be and at other times that attention is demanded in the form of humor. Such is the case of a dog park in Vancouver Canada.
When most dog owners enter a dog park they are met with a set of rules. Some parks have a lot of rules and others are fairly relaxed about things. If you are in Texas the rules are likely written in English and if you are in Mexicali the rules are likely in Spanish. This is how things should work. What about if you are a dog in one of these places? The park on North Vancouver has directions for both owners and dogs!
Owners: “Pick up after your dogs. Thank you!”
Dogs: “Grrr, Bark, Woof. Good dog!”
This is what’s called a pattern interrupt and it is darned effective. No one expects the sign to have rules for the actual dog to follow. A dog park lends itself to be a little relaxed and a bit more laid back than a college campus or a hospital and the park still needs to lay down a basic set of rules. They are doing this in a humorous manners and one that gets the requisite attention. Well done! We are not showing the sign due to copyright rules by the way.
While not everyone can use humor in this was it remains a fact that everyone needs to have their signs get a certain level of attention. We can help! We are the Visual Solution Group.
