REDESIGNED public signs are expected to be installed around the Kingston municipality soon.
Kingston Council has engaged a consultant to put together a “wayfinding strategy”. The strategy assessed font sizes, colours, and languages used on local signs.
Acting Kingston mayor Chris Hill said that the new signs needed to be informative, inclusive, and consistent. “We want to make it clear and simple for people of all abilities to be able to enjoy Kingston’s many parks, cycling/walking paths, shopping precincts and more,” he said. “Kingston has a lot of varied signs. Some of them are good, but some of them are quite old and need replacing. We now have a consistent approach moving forward, with the signs to follow an agreed contemporary format. We want our signs to provide important information, while keeping Kingston looking good.”
The new signs (pictured) will feature artwork by artist Heather Kennedy.
