These are two signs, on the same apartment building, down the street from my office.
The top sign is obviously an original from the 1970s, with a cut metal facing over a plastic lightbox. And a really cool font.
The bottom sign is some P.O.S designed on a desktop and stuck to the overhang on the front walkway. It has an unnecessary set of nested frames to distinguish it, and that remarkably unimpressive abstract apartment building clipart thing is actually a really poor attempt at branding by the property management company that now runs Centretown Place.
I’ve never found anything remarkable about the building but its sign – and now they’re screwing that up.
