Traffic sign design with Buchanan Computing

Buchanan Computing celebrates road sign art

An exciting new art project involving Margaret Calvert, celebrated as the co-designer of our iconic system of road signs, has been facilitated by Buchanan Computing using SignPlot software.

Margaret has teamed up with the well-known illustrator Marion Deuchars to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the M1 motorway, with a dissection of one of its signs.

Margaret and Marion have based their work upon one of the original cardboard and gouache ‘maquettes’, produced for the Worboys Committee on traffic signs in 1963. This has been recreated in SignPlot (with a few minor adjustments for historical authenticity) and manufactured using materials appropriate to 1959 by Route Signs Ltd.

Simon Morgan commented, “It has been very exciting to work with Margaret and Marion on this artwork and to gain an understanding of the aesthetic aspects and artistic potential of roadside objects that we usually take for granted.”

To see Margaret’s and Marion’s new take on the motorway sign, traffic signing and art aficionados need to visit the If You Could Collaborate exhibition at the A Foundation Gallery in Arnold Circus, London E2 between 15 and 23 January 2010.
