Flight Safety

Constructing meaning from visual images I think these oxygen mask instructions are quite funny in how varied they are. All of them appear as information graphics and have an instruction manual feel to them. I think it is interesting how most using an arrow have chosen red, to demonstrate an order. Most of these message are clear to understand and we would know what to do, but some leave alot to the imagination such as the first in the middle row which just shows the mask attached and an arrow. Some just make me smile, such as the woman with a chin to put Desperate Dan to shame at the end of the top row, and the other woman who seems to be suffocating from her oxygen mask, bottom right, how ironic.
