Garage Doors: Outliers, Pt. 3

There's a certain rush when I find a design I've never seen before, but especially when that design is not simply a variation of a standard but a true outlier. I hadn't realized there were so many unique designs around though. At what point does a series of exceptions become the rule?

These rectangles sport little slugtrails.




Not sure what's going on here, it's like a half swastika.




I have yet to see another set of marching quadrilaterals that mixes squares and rectangles.




Click to enlarge this one... not only are there unique circles within rectangles but within the circles are embossed bullseyes!




This one takes the grand prize as far for outre creativity as far as I'm concerned. I especially like that it has a matching garden gate!

  1. I especially like that the marching quadrilaterals belong to a duplex: double the fun! I'll keep my eyes open for another slug trail design. My favorite so far.

  2. That last one is a b&w take off on Mondrian's Broadway Boobie-woogie (not really)
