Vicdoor / identification


Gates of public places often affixed with a "push" and "pull" label,
which has several defects. One is that this kind of label is
indicative and people may ignore its existence.
Second , labels are not enough beautiful.
These problem can be solved by "Vicdoor" very well.
1. Use the arrow's modeling language giving direction to people.
2. People can find "Vicdoor" rapidly,particularly in emergency situations.
3. This design is simple and straightforward.
