Shop Signs

Every good shop needs a great sign. How about these? I have arranged them in a logical order.

Of course, you can have signs on a matatu door, such as this. Lots of religious messages on bush taxis.

Or some interesting signs advertising hair salons, especially hair dying and blowouts.

Wall art is a popular way to advertise or get public health messages across. I like the second image where the lady is asking her boyfriend about his HIV status and his thought bubble says: “*?!!” She’s in an off the shoulder evening gown and he’s wearing a leather jacket and incredibly wide jeans (wider than my loon pants from 1971).

Pork Choma is barbecued pork. Why a chimpanzee would be advertising this is a mystery. I hope I’m not eating bush meat here.
