London’s Transport Museum is hosting an illustrated talk on the “vital role” of signs in our lives.
The Signs and the City talk includes contributions from three experts in the field of signage.
Claire Dobbin, the Museum’s senior curator, will explore the relationship between the design heritage of the Tube map and the iconic ‘roundel’, considered one of the most enduring brand logos in the world.
Jerry Hill, from Transport for London’s (TfL) Sign and Wayfinding Design Unit will illustrate plans for the direction of the millions of extra visitors to London in 2012.
Designer Alice Moloney, whose signage design work features in the Museum’s new exhibition Sense and the City: smart, connected and on the move, will talk about her way-finding system for pedestrians.
The talk will take place on Tuesday 20 September 2011.
Tickets cost £8.00 for adults, £6.00 for concessions and £4.00 for students and can be ordered by calling the box office on 020 7565 7298
