We don’t think much about street signs until they fail us–and at that point we’re lost, annoyed, or even endangered. But architects and urban planners give them a lot of consideration, part of a field called “way-finding.” The idea is to make information legible and easily understandable, especially for drivers who may only have a few seconds to interpret it. Just how, exactly, do street signs get designed? How has GPS changed the way we see the road? And, we must ask, which are the worst signs in our region?
