USA vs. the rest of the world


Americans like to rub people the wrong way. As the rest of the world makes sense of things with the metric system, the USA sticks to its inches, so to speak. A similar silent storm has been brewing over international symbology (let’s keep Robert Langdon out of this). The ubiquitous EXIT (only seen in the US) continues to stick its middle finger in the face of the internationally preferred Green Running Man (designed in Japan in 1985).

A very interesting analysis of the war over international design is provided when you click and the name of the post. I highly recommend you take two minutes to read. What do you think?
