LA’s Parking Signs Get a Visual Makeover

No matter what city you live in, parking signs can be a freaking nightmare. But in Los Angeles, they are nothing short of maddening.

Luckily, LA City Council’s Transportation Committee voted to simplify the signs last week. Why are we so excited? Not only will the simplification make life easier for anyone with a car in LA, the proposed revamp gives signs a full visual makeover.

The new signs will be created by a local graphic artist and tested over the next 45 days. And although we have yet to see finalized designs, this is definitely a step in the right direction. We love to see information design going mainstream, especially when it saves time and our hard-earned money.

Kudos to the city council for embracing a more creative—and effective—way to communicate.
