This is an example of the New Rail Alphabet that was used in the Ergonomics Exhibition, designed by Margaret Calvert of Kinneir Calvert Associates. It’s very interesting how effective something like this can be in situations such as railways, airports and simply signs in general. Is clarity makes it perfect for an audience of all ages to be able to read when necessary.

Using inspiration from the old Portsmouth holiday adverts, I have thought about including the railway somehow in my logo. Therefor I looked at signs that are found around railways, similar to street signs and found these two which I liked. The first one is from my home town a lot of these style signs were used on railway stations to inform passengers where they are. I liked the shape of the sign, not entirely sure why the railway company chose this design but it is very clear to read. A more modern sign found a lot around London are these underground railway signs to inform people where the stations where. the red circle stands out from the urban setting but the writing cant be circular as well, as that would make the writing difficult to read so this is put in a box so the word can fit in and be legible. Not only have these inspired me, but logos already existing in Portsmouth have inspired this logo.
