WHAT IF no7: LADY METROS BECOMES GIFT BOX

I don’t know much about this new store except it sells gifts.

I guess most people know very little about it as it doesn’t have a sign. When the shutters are shut it doesn’t even look like it’s a business.

This is what it currently looks like:

The shop without a face

The shop without a face

I presume that once this was once one shop. I think it would be wise to live in harmony with Desire next door and make the sign one colour. Otherwise it’s a bit like those houses that try too hard to be different from their neighbours and you get a drainpipe painted in two different colours.

One other pet hate of mine are roller shutters that completely cover the front of the shop. They make high streets look like prisons. But you can turn a negative into an advantage by painting it.

So a shop without a sign becomes giftbox…

And how it could look

And how it could look



To give greater synergy with Desire next door I kept the numbers the same (it just looks so much neater and it keeps the postman happy!)
