    A sign with stacked light boxes for “Belma, Cilindros Eléctricos” near the Balhão neighbourhood in Porto. Two yellow sides, one white. It’s quite a huge sign compared to the modest shop underneath. For the company name, the sign makers picked Jackson, and stretched or squeezed it until the glyphs were narrow enough. The M was mirrored — intentionally or accidentally?
