You will no doubt be aware that new tourist information signs have been in the process of being rolled out around the city for some time. The panels in the floor with their ‘coming soon’ like slots at the designated locations have caused some controversy but the new signs now reside in these slots and really catch the eye.
This particular sign on the prom by The Pyramid Centre was put in before the Great South Run and contains a great map, with walkable distances shown, places of interest and more. The signs also utilise QR codes on their side for quick access to website and mobile information for visitors too. As always, there will be conversations about costs in these economic times but do they do the job and are they well designed?
