Roadgeekery

#1
As you can tell from the name, I'm a huge roadgeek. I make roadsigns. They aren't entirely based on real life, and they're rather based on whatever my imagination comes up with or whatever road signs should look like. I may also redesign lousy interchange/intersection setups or even entirely new roads through a small area.

Here's some roadsigns I made today:

These are really high quality signs here Josh.
I am very impressed with this work here.
I can't wait to see what the others think of these.

Since this is in graphics/creative design, and roadgeekery, I'll post a fictional map of a proposed US highway system based off of prime/composite #'s

Prime numbers go N-S, Composites go E-W

Those signs look great cheese. What's great and very creative is that you made those from scratch without help of templates. Very well done.
I'd like to see more of those.

Aco.. anyone can take pre-existing roads and put a new number on them, can't they?

Very nice signs. Better than most real life signs, to be honest. Tongue

Hope to see more. Big Grin

Yeah, but I made it into a makeshift map. Really, anybody could go into signmaker and make custom signs for themselves Tongue

Cheers Big Grin Cheers again Big Grin
Doing that by hand is pretty impressive though. It looks pretty high-quality.

Not too shabby, cheese. Smile The "in-progress" portion of the roadwork sign should be slightly more to the right, I think, so it is centred. Unless the offset was intentional. Tongue

I like the styling. They feel quite unique to me. Big Grin

Very nice signs. I like the big commercial aircraft on the enforced by aircraft sign.
The HOV sign is very nice and unique. Very imaginative.
The curvy road sign looks kind of plain and maybe putting the speed limit for the curves under the curvy arrow might look good. EDIT: I see you did that. Very nice.  Big Grin

Thanks. Normally the speed enforced by aircraft signs in real life have a small fixed-wing plane instead of a 747, but there's not a small plane icon in the roadgeek fonts to my knowledge Tongue

The roadwork sign is a bit wonky for me, but otherwise, the signs are great!
