Along the Line / Public route sign

More than 100,000 people will come to the scene to participate in the Tokyo Olympics by 2020. How to make the visit guidance as efficient as possible is a huge challenge. We designed a new sign system. A small hole was drilled in the upper right corner of the new sign and all the signs on the same route were strung together by a thin line. We use different colors to represent different destinations, which allows the user to reach their destination by simply walking along a specific color line. This signage system is very easy to install and remove. Its cost is very low and it can be reused.
