In the details

I pass this walking home from train and since I'm a graphic designer I think about it. There are two things I like about this mailbox housing and one that I don't. I like the very simple grid that those mailboxes are set up in and I like the fact that the letters are large and are in white so that they stand out from the box. I don't like letter forms. I think this whole thing was a good idea until it came down to the detail of what the "A" should look and then someone just slapped some paint on there and the whole thing fell apart, so now these people are left with ugly looking mail boxes.

I think it's on the same box as the "H" so it looks like it says Hi. Pretty strange huh?
