Today I went and got my poster printed. Pretty happy with the outcome.
Bring on that capped re-sit grade pass.
Top Gear is religion in my family. Tonight however, I was very impressed with the part on Margaret Calvert - the woman who alongside 4 others, redesigned Britain’s road signs.
She standardised imagery, redesigned the typefaces, pictograms and colourways to make them easy to understand when passing at high speeds. A rather mammoth task I think. She went on to design typefaces especially for the british railway system.
I have always wondered who designed road signage, often another one of those instances where we take design for granted.
