Good Ole Times (Roman)

It seems to me these days that graphic design has lost its way. I don't think it's necessarily the designers' fault. Everyone is upwardly mobile and market- and image-conscious, always trying to stand out and be clever. Well, when you have a room full of clever people, it can get mighty tiresome. So, you have contractor names that look like banks, banks that look like designers, tattoo parlors that look like salons, and so on.

Here's the real deal. I love the graphic design on this. But look! A sign for a car repair place that....

*GASP* is a car repair place!
