Public Signage

This article from the Guardian is asking the public to send in photographs of “dodgy signs”

Signage is a very important issue in design, particularly in the design of public services. I spent time in Amsterdam mapping out customer journeys – in locations such as Amsterdam Centraal station, Sloterdijk Bus station and Schipol airport. I photographed each stage of my journey including the signs I followed. The common outcome was signs in the wrong position, unclear and no consistency in the graphics of signs throughout one area.

“Britain’s baffling collection of ungrammatical, misspelt, out of date and plain wrong public signs is to have a national audit, with the public recruited as error spotters.”
