“Adept”, Bath: understated

Adept Fire & Security Systems Ltd

“Adept Fire & Security Systems Ltd” burglar alarm, Bath • This logo with its strange pink spot suggests only borderline excellence, as adept is such an odd, understated word: the thesaurus offers flowery synonyms like adroit, accomplished, and dextrous. But it’s more fun playing “antonym alarms”, so my non-excellent doppelganger would simply be called “Inept fire and security”. Which might not catch on. • Spotted: Miles’s Buildings, Bath, Avon, BA1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bath
