My first post-college job was laying out real estate signs, mostly the big plywood signs on vacant lots for commercial development. Typical signs were on 4'x8' plywood, or smaller depending on budget and zoning restrictions. One typical request was to "make it look exactly like my business card", which always resulted in a VERY empty looking sign.

Another (rarer, but not rare enough) type of request was the overly specific request. Apparently the realtors who were wrangling million dollar deals had some shortcomings in the math department, resulting in requests similar to this:

I want a 4 foot tall sign 8 feet wide. I want the title and phone number in 20 inch tall letters, and these other four lines of text in 14 inch letters. Make sure there is plenty of space to help readability...
