OXO Sign

The Thames London OXO Sign

Architect Albert W Moore was commissioned by the Liebig Extract of Meat Company, to build the site in 1927 keeping as much of the original structure. The Local Authority was very fussy about huge illuminated signs especially being seen from the Thames. When Moore submitted plans to have the company name in lights blazoned across the building the Council were none too happy with it. But there’s Moore! He decided to use OXO (which just happened to be a subsidiary company of Liebig) And as you know it reads OXO vertically rather horizontally

  • O
  • X
  • O

So why did they accept this?

He claimed it was “an elemental geometric form? rather than a word. Hence the Oxo “sign? could no longer be classified as an advert.

can you better this wiki entry?  If so, juct click edit and then save.

Inspire

The inspire range of sign software was developed by Scanvec to allow easy sign design and production using computer cut vinyl. Inspire replaced Casmate as Scanvec's range of signmaking software but like Casmate it is no longer produced or supported.
