Chicago Transit Authority Bus Stop Signage Redesign

cta bus stop signage

As a CTA bus passenger, I discovered that the current CTA bus stop signage wasn't informative. In my re-design, I intended to improve the signage in many different aspects including type, icons, color, shape, size of sign, and overall composition to create a visually and verbally more informative design that suits Chicago's characteristics as one of the international tourist and cultural destinations.
From research, conceptualization, execution to art direction, I did it all independently.
In the end, I published a process book of this project and I presented my project at a Research Forum where over 300 people presented scholarly researches in different industries. My design received so much attention and positive feedback from the design and business communities that I was highly encouraged and recommended to apply for a patent for my design.
In the process of designing and presenting my design and publishing my process book, I applied my knowledge of photography, typography, graphic design, photo manipulation and correction, illustration and English writing and public speaking.
