Grid (not the Modernist variety)

city_hall_1city_hall_2city_hall_3Signs at the Hong Kong City Hall. I might be generalising, but this is what graphic designers typically do: come up with a ‘concept’ first (in this case a grid of four squares to reflect the architecture I presume), then throw whatever information into it. The grid is clearly not for organising information but for decoration – the information is subservient to it.
