The State Fair. It comes around each year and brings to mind food on a stick, vegetables winning blue ribbons, kitchen gadget displays, and pig races. This past week I was able to check out the North Carolina State Fair, which runs from October 17 – 27 in Raleigh, NC.
The state fair can be a visual sensory overload with the large number of signs and logos that are placed on garbage cans, fences, rides and food trucks. Between all the standard signage there were some classic hand lettered signs and unique displays that stood out at the fair.
