Too many sighs, They look like the bill boards they considered an eye sore years ago, and banned. Now they do it without our say, so I will say it now. I don't care one bit for the excess & intrusive number of signs along our streets, how did commuters get around before? No one knew where things were going, In this day of mobile access? You don't know to share the road? No text & driving, no eating and driving. It's too much, looks like a slum. Why not install kiocs at particular intersections, taller. lite up at night, pointing out areas of interest? attractive, inviting, welcome.

Do a search on the Deck for "Wayfinding" and "Way Finding"

You would enjoy "A New Logo For DowntowN" http://lakewoodobserver.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7620&hilit=New+Logo

One of the best threads ever on the Deck started by Mary Ann Crampton.

Drawings, stories, ideas, color tests, music, flowers, beds, and the Apocalypse!

Also this image that drive resident shwn juris nuts, as being "photoshopped" it is not.

This thread alone, at this point in time is priceless.

I like the kiosk idea. Customer Service reps at ever intersection. Virginia Marti can design their outfits and Scott Richardson can design the kiosks. Lakewood could be the first to bring back the old world feel. Next up, pay phone booths that double as charging stations.

I like the business signs, some are neon, or lite up, very nice, makes the neighborhood exciting, but the cities street signs, the side walk signs, that is what I'm talking about. "Cross here, bike lane, no parking, bus lane, public parking here" What about nice tall lighted kiosk in the main intersections, "Metro Parks" this way, " Kauffman Park" that way.

Random act of love.
Random act of art.
Random act of sidewalk chalk art.
Random act of signage.
Random act much appreciated.
