Brenizer and I were on the train on Sunday, when we noticed this ad. I think what really offends the few design sensibilities I possess is not that that padlock can be easily plucked from the S, but that there’s a perfectly sealed lowercase G in the middle, dropping down below the rest of the word to divide the words below it. It’s the perfect place for the padlock, as opposed to where you see it, which protects no theft.
