Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

NY City Transit rules

January 17, 2008, 1:58 AM

New York City Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual (1970) (photo set on Flickr – Swiss design proves to be unbeatable once again – wonder why the weird spacing though) contains some clear rules:

No littering – No spitting – No smoking.

I sure wish we had such plates every 100m in Romania.
Especially against spitting.
