System in the Wild: Tufte Edition
Welcome to another edition of System in the Wild! You send me interesting images that figure the sort of artwork you see here featured in the system, and I post them on the site giving credit where it’s due. If you find the like, send them over to systemcomic at the gmail dotting com. I tend to post in 3’s, and try to keep it to the ones that are actually funny / interesting.
Systemic Kenny sends this my way, though as with most good posts BoingBoing beat me to it the other day. As you probably know, I’m a fan of Edward Tufte (hence all the infographic posts). You probably are as well, so check out this great wallpaper. I don’t know how I feel about their use of Gill Sans, but I do very much agree with the sentiment. Click the link, you’ll see what I mean.

This one comes from a new comment section of the first ever System in the Wild post and Systemic Margie. Huffington Post has posted a slide show of 16 of the oddest “prohibition signs”. They meant “System in the Wild signs” but I won’t hold that against them. This one was my favorite, telling you not to throw away babies. What’s yours? LINK »
Finally one from Systemic Martin of North Yorkshire, England. He was kind enough to send a note (and the image) after the post on Exit Fights.
After seeing the latest post on the argument about which emergency exit signage is best (Green bloke scarpering gets my vote!) I remembered reading a very dull article about health and safety improvements in UK/EU law in a very dull engineering magazine. This had a very literal ‘Exit fight’ as the article’s banner. Being a nerd; this amused me and I scanned and cropped the image for use as an avatar… and amusement purposes.
I’m with him for the green bloke. LINK »
