The village is especially popular with British tourists; as a local tour guide explained: "The Germans all want to see Mozart's house in Salzburg; the Americans want to see where The Sound of Music was filmed; the Japanese want Hitler's birthplace in Braunau; but for the British, it's all about Fucking." Augustina Lindlbauer, the manager of an area guesthouse, noted that the area had lakes, forests, and vistas worth visiting, but there was an "obsession with Fucking".Lindlbauer recalled how she had to explain to a British female tourist "that there were no Fucking postcards." After a spate of thefts, which included the theft of all four signs in one night, and a total of fifteen over a period of several years, in August 2005 the road signs were replaced with theft-resistant ones, welded to steel and secured in concrete to prevent theft.When being a design client gets hard—when you need fast turn-arounds on feedback, when they owe you content, when it’s time to foot production costs—clients who aren’t themselves on the hook for the project’s success will stall or bail.

Free labor becomes a prerequisite for making a name for yourself, and designers who can’t afford to work for free have to bust their asses extra hard to establish themselves with none of the design media fanfare. Can you imagine winning a pissing contest with Steve Jobs? But even still, I’m sure Paul Rand had a contract guaranteeing some payment if Jobs had decided to go talk to other people.
