margaret-calvertThere’s a couple of days left to catch Made North’s exhibition which celebrates 50 years of the British road sign.

In 1965, our now so familiar new road signage was launched – designed by Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinneir, including hand drawn pictograms and Margaret’s custom made font called ‘Transport’.

Perhaps unsung heroes of the British design world, Calvert and Kinneir’s work has never been out of use and will undoubtably be with us for another 50 years.

The exhibition is running until August 1st: www.madenorth.co.uk/2015/05/50th-anniversary-of-the-british-road-sign
