GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD
Remember those shiny gold and turquoise pylon signs at Northcross? The Wizard of Oz signs? Well, they're history. I designed these two replacements, and kept things on the subtle side in consideration of the flap from the neighborhood, and the need for WalMart to just quietly slide into place. God, I feel dirty...
I used the architect's palette and elements from the entry, along with thin-stroke reverse channel letters mounted at their baselines, to keep this on the down low. I also had to work around the chrome-blingy Veranda signs below.
