Unfortunately, 80% of women will miss the first sign of breast cancer coz its written in such fine print. especially as a in-store display idea, this is a definite failure. if it was a mailer sent in public interest by a leading mall or clothing house, i guess it would've worked better. even as an ad probably.
dont u think this ambient idea defeats the very purpose for which it was created? people will see sale and 80% and swarm inside the stores gleefuly eyeing all their favourite clothes n accessories when the store manager will supply the overexcited customers (hopefully)with a magnifying glass and ask them to go and see the signage again. and then, it will be awareness in its truest sense.

the 'discount' font is avant garde medium bold. ikea's using a modified futura.
