look down for cool type
How often isn't utilitarian design simply so much more interesting than design trying to be attractive. Break this piece down element by element and it's not particularly elegant. Badly kerned Helvetica. A standard diamond pattern surrounding the type. A clumsily stylized fish. It's small. See it? Some roughly cut holes. Rust. Together it's a piece of art. Especially when lit by nature's own photo lamp.
