I love this device. What is it called? I usually call it the X or cross, but I'm sure there's an official name for it. I always associate it with monograms, I think the first time I saw one it was used as part of it. I would love to see some really early examples of it, because I've seen it used on some pretty old stuff. I think it's a strong versatile symbol.


Is it a bug or a feature that your example dusrupts the word order? Depending how you see it, more or less like Yoda it reads.

Ooh, thanks AaB, lovely.


Matt, that's sort of an accident and sort of clever...


You're right, they are everywhere, just in the last couple of days I've happened on:


I saw a lot of these post Katrina when they used something like this spray painted on doors to indicate people found dead, alive, etc. According to this site they called them X-Codes: http://www.southernspaces.org/2010/katrina-5-x-code-exhibition


Yeah, I'd say there are a few of them around... http://yourlogoisnothardcore.tumblr.com/
