Spacing’s transit contributor James Bow recently wrote about the Save the TTC Signs which includes preserving the signage system at St. George Station created by noted Canadian graphic designer Paul Arthur. As part of the the TTC’s plan to to clean-up stations the signage system was to be removed. Instead, “direction has been given to staff to leave the Paul Arther signage in place until St. George is schedule for renovation under the station modernization program. It’s not in the schedule yet, so it will likely be there for a good while longer, unless direction is given otherwise.”
Keeping it place is fine, but eventually it should be removed to coincide with the implementation of a properly tested signage system across the TTC. Now that the preservation is on the radar, the TTC can look to for a suitable home for Arthur’s orphan wayfinding system.
