Consistency is the key

by: Garry Pierrepont (8 April 2015)

I always think that consistency is key in a book, document, paper, flyer, etc. So what about on the front of a pub? Yes, there too.

Yet this pub in London seems to have a split personality, “the sea horse” on one side becoming “the seahorse” on another.

The Sea horse

Sea horse – two words – is technically correct, but, one way or another, let’s be consistent.

As for the lower case throughout – don’t get me started.

Ref: 165 That pub must have changed hands and they forgot to correct it on one side - must be a trifle confusing for customers! But yes, inconsistency often seems to be the norm, unfortunately.

Ref: 164 Blimey (163) that IS crazy.

Ref: 163 Stratford-upon-Avon has a pub with the Dirty Duck on one side of the sign and the Black Horse on the other...true lack of consistency there!
