M & W / Toilet identification system

M & W
M & W

Figure-ground reversal is a special visual effect that will produces multiple meanings of figures. So, we take advantage of it to design with “M”(the initial of ‘man’ ) and “W”(the initial of ‘woman’). We abandon the former paper-cut silhouette of man and woman; instead, we use women’s high-heeled shoes and men’s leather shoes as basic elements to design man and woman toilet signs.
