I heart signs.
I suspect because I love words.
[I also enjoy a good rebus].
Words are pictures of sounds.
Images indelibly embedded with meaning.
[You can't NOT 'read' a word if you 'see' it, if you understand the language and the meaning.]
And signs are pictures of words.
If you see what I mean.
But words are also signs, in a different sense.
Signifiers. Of Signifieds.
I'm doing a little project where I post one interesting or weird or whatever I feel like sign every day for a year.
You can follow it over on This Is Signified on Tumblr.
Or follow @thisissignified on Twitter and have one sign tweeted to your preferred client every day.
And if you see a sign you think is awesome - you can submit it to the project on Tumblr.
