Hmmmm. I love it. But I would also love seeing this ad set in Bulmer italic and nicely placed all over the city...

Lets take graffiti and truthful messages and set them in a nice typeface. That is the future I want to behold.

Hi Book Designer

You should take a look at some of the work being done by a London based artist who goes by the name of Eine.

Some good examples at this URL.

Why write anything at all though? Surely by leaving it blank, it allows the billboard to not sell anything. As soon as your have a message, you sell that message. Not in a monetary sense, but in imposing a point of view towards the public.
