Given the complexity of last year’s Fringe Festival rating system, I’ve opted to use the KISS principle and stick with just one graphic. Keeping with the theme of the festival – Fringe Factory – I will use the following simple factory rating system:
0 Factories – The factory has been burned to the ground and the whereabouts of workers and managers alike are unknown. You are risking your life by getting close to this situation.
– The workers have sabotaged the factory. Stay away!
– The workers are on strike. Cross the picket line at your own risk.
– The workers are threatening to unionize. This could be good… or bad… depending on your viewpoint.
– Labour-management relations are running smoothly and production is chugging along. It’s worth checking out this operation.
– Labour and management are working like a well-oiled machine, turning out high quality product at an astonishing rate. This operation definitely needs to be paid a visit!
