It’s not often I pick up the junk mail that falls through the letter box and read the information presented in front of me. Until now, where obviously the designer or printer hadn’t checked the spelling of the town I’ve lived in for my whole life. I picked it up and thought it was hilarious, I even considered framing it.



I suppose as a designer, attention to detail goes through my mind every time I create anything; we have all fallen victim to some sort of mistakes when spelling but this example is inexcusable. This has taken me on a small journey of collecting materials that have spelling mistakes. I don’t really seek them; I often just stumble across them and find that I’m capturing the moment in some way. Here are a few examples of others I have found:
