Requires Reading (Signage in London)

April 10, 2012

The details in any city are ones that you might not see at first. Luckily the designer in me always notices the signage in any city.

I was raised (& live now) in a city that can be a little gruff. New York does not explain or make apologies for itself. It especially does not do this in the signage around the city. London, on the other hand is very polite in everything that it does. It also has an old charm in the way signage is written.

See below for some examples.

Notice the way bicycles is spelled.

Notice the camera symbol is almost from 100 years ago.

The most polite construction sign I have ever seen.

Had to read this sign twice.

Not sure what this was about but I thought it was funny.

A polite rebel.

The most well known poster or ad for London was “Keep Calm and Carry On”. CLICK HERE to read about it.
