LEEDS SIGNAGE

 

The task of the project was to work towards making the signage for areas of interest within Leeds city centre more interactive. 

An experimental typographic approach was taken, introducing a system of
‘cut-up’ letterforms, yet keeping emphasis on distinctive areas for legibility.

TYPOGRAPHIC SYSTEM

The ‘cut-up’ typographic system was at first used for names of specific places of interest within Leeds city centre, but later developed into a series of 4 questions which were used to categorise and address the locations.

 

QR CODE

To maximise public interactivity, a QR code was included in the designs which, when scanned using a mobile phone or device, opens up Leeds City Council’s ‘Visit Leeds’ map of the city centre.
