For the cascading letters of OASIS to be getting the alternating left-and-right treatment but not those of GIFT, in this Gift Oasis typographic layout idea.

For the cascading letters of OASIS to be getting the alternating left-and-right treatment but not those of GIFT, in this Gift Oasis typographic layout idea.
How-to-interpret:
* The vertical arrangement of the GIFT lettering is meant to help us keep in our memories the notion of stacks of wrapped presents.
* The jiggling-to-and-fro arrangement of the OASIS lettering is intended to invoke the eruptions into dances-for-joy of parched desert travellers, upon their arrivals at oases.

Buried underneath of GIFT OASIS you can make out the letters of DAYTONA TANS, and my past-tense hope for it is: That nobody ever got a deadly you-know-what from baking in Daytona Tans' sunbeds. The reason why Daytona Tans closed is: The federal government decided to ban all tanningbed businesses as part of an anticancer healthinsurance moneysaver initiative.

The yellow bumperpoles are protecting the signpole not-quite-enough.
