design work: road signs

16 Nov

whenever i think of signs or hear the word, i immediately beginning singing ace of base’s “the sign” in my head. what can i say? i’m a sucker for 90s swedish pop.

anyway… here’s another design exercise based on the concept of immediacy in communication. i was given 9 labeled, but blank, road signs with which i was to come up with a graphic reprsentation of the written subject. the designs were to be done in black, but we were permitted to use color if the design or idea called for it. the last image, the bottom right sign, was a blank unlabeled sign where i was given the opportunity to decide upon my subject and label…
