Found Graphic Design, Penang

Hello from balmy Penang, Malaysia!

My Northern California employer, a well-known FPGA vendor, has an office here in Penang Malaysia. I got permission to “telecommute” from here for a couple of months. Today is just cooling down, it’s 5pm and about 80F outside, with a chance of rain. Same weather year round.

Not much in the way of pixels going on in this part of the world… but I did stumble upon this bit of remarkable graphic design work, on some signage atop Penang Hill, showing roads, hiking trails, and such.

Just look at that! That amazing plotter-font, and what’s that OR gate doing there? And lovingly aged by time, itself. This is the real deal.

here’s the whole sign.
