Corporation Sign


A long vinyl, green rectangular sign displaying the Advanced Fresh Concepts Corporation logo and advertising the company's sushi.

The sign shows a cloth hanging from a bamboo rod meant to resemble a Japanese noren (traditional fabric room dividers). Here, it is used as a means to advertise business, hence the AFC logo printed on the sign. AFC places this sign above their sushi counters, displaying AFC’s intentionality in attempting to recreate an authentic sushi experience for consumers.
