“BAC”, Bristol: uninspired iris

“BAC” burglar alarm, Bristol • I like burglar alarm-hunting in the West Country, because there are so many independent firms with quirky designs. Sadly, this is one of the less inspired ones: I’m not sure if it’s a letter “O” representing the iris (or perhaps a number “0”, for zero crime), but I’m including it in the typographic section anyway. There’s an example of BAC’s current design here, which is even worse, and doesn’t look like an eye any more. The firm is based in the unpreposessing yet quaintly-named suburb of Fishponds; their website gives no clue as to what BAC stands for, but I’m guessing Bristol Alarm Company. • Spotted: Exchange Avenue, St Nicholas Market, Bristol, Avon, BS1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bristol West
