FSFO Crest

We couldn’t really attempt to cover our studio building in graffiti without getting a cheeky little reference to the glorious Isle of Man in there. So we’ve decided to revive a bit of graffiti that was found all over the island when we were growing up and give it a little design twist. FSFO apparently meant ‘Financial Sector F**k Off’ and was daubed on walls in the 80’s purportedly in response to the increasing growth and power of the Island’s burgeoning finance sector. Personally I always preferred the other definition of the acronym- which was that it stood for ‘Free Sex for Onchan‘ (which is a small town on the Island) and the idea that sexual liberation was one thing they were willing to fight for. FSFO!

Cheers
