Sign of the Times

Our public buildings have shut their doors. Many construction projects are on hold or working to extended lead-times with new working practices in place. Our everyday language includes unprecedented times, furlough and social distancing. As the world changes, albeit temporarily, so does the need for signage.

We have been compiling a record of some of the signs and notices which have been appearing on our instagram. Some manufactured (options are very limited right now), some printed and laminated, some hand drawn. Right now it does not matter how, it’s the message that counts.

Buildings and facilities have been closed. Those shops permitted to remain open are operating in new ways. Pictograms have begun to emerge as a means of depicting staying 2 metres apart.
