Artists Make High-Grade Signs for the Homeless

Signs for the Homeless is a lovely project by Kenji Nakayama and Christopher Hope. They interview homeless people begging on the streets and create glossy, visually striking versions of the signs that their interviewees have already written.

Seriously -- this is an awful idea. (Frank's sign in particular is utterly unreadable in its after format.) And as has been stated, a professional sign looks like advertising, not a personal plea from someone purportedly hungry and homeless.

I'd have said that the biggest indication that they were in need of money was the fact that they had a sign made of old cardboard. You don't even need to read a cardboard sign, you pretty much know the message and why the person is there. Holding a pro-quality sign gives the impression that it's some kind of advertisement, and I don't think a homeless person begging for money needs one more reason to be ignored.

This is a stupid idea, or it's really a way to make fun of the homeless. Does anyone think this really helps them or gives them a boost to their confidence in getting out of this situation?
