The World Of Signage Photo Contest

The team over at Smashing Magazine have launched an interesting competition, submit a picture of a great sign and you could win a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS (EOS 1000D). Here’s the background:

Typography and icons are everywhere: they surround us, guide us, help us find the right path every day. As Web designers and graphic artists, we can learn from observing the type and public signage around us. How do designers of those graphics combine type, visual design and pictograms? How do they guide us through our day? More importantly, how do they design their graphics to meaningfully serve their purpose in particular settings?

I have a bit of a “thing” for signage so will be keeping an eye on this one.
