Layout | haiku street signs in new york city
This is an interesting project in New York, a collaboration between the New York City Department of Transportation and artist John Morse. There are 12 designs that promote roadside safety using simple illustration and haiku – the short three line Japanese poem.
I guess the idea is to create something different that may stick with people. It may also cause a roadside distraction as people try to decipher the poem’s meaning while walking infront of traffic.
