El Conio The Magnificent

What do you get if you cross some first year art school students with some litter and a traffic cone?

You get “El Conio The Magnificent” an explanation of how traffic cones end up in the River Kelvin.

Oh to be a student again – it was a simpler time!


  1. Quite clever …is there a problem with the sound tho’?

    And what are those things at 1m 23 ..the things that look like calculators?

  2. That’s graffiti in the park between the Gibson Street bridge and Kelvinbridge undergroud car park – I guess it was comissioned as it streches right along the wall, and it looks pretty good πŸ™‚

  3. I was thinking more of the two iems that the Traffic Cone walks across the top of …what are they …the things that look like calculators ?

  4. This is who we need to design the new logo for the KAA . I’d like a Kingfisher. But we should get art school to have a competition amogst their students. Actually we should have an open competition with finalists voted for by members for the winner. No monetary prize. Just the glory of having your design on the permit. And maybe the winning design exhibited in the Kelvingrove art galllery next to the stuffed fish. I think the appreciation of trout (and fish) goes hand in hand with a sophisticated sense of aesthetics. If we’re going to have a logo it may as well be a timeless design classic .
