Cultural Awareness Notes by Region
There was some debate in our group about using red for printing as it is said to be culturally taboo. Some of the teachers in the Japanese elementary school attached to my school also feel this way. I have included a sampling of red printing on signs I found on my way home from school in Kyoto (Japan) featuring red. A cleaners, a women's clinic, a noodle shop, a church and a liquor sign. Take cultural warnings with a grain of salt. I did not go out of my way to find these and eventually I just stopped taking photos.
