Think about it... a city's signage is its first impression to the rest of the world. Ever visit a town with broken road signs? Ever visit a business with a burnt out bulb or two? We all have, and it affects how we perceive the area around us. New, clean, bright signs say "Welcome" to visitors. Old, broken, dilapited signs tell visitors that the people nearby don't care much about about making a good impression. Too many signs make a road cluttered and unsafe. Too few signs can make a district confusing and impossible to navigate. We stare at signs all day but never really look at them... until now.
This module will teach you about different kinds of signs and the roles they play as they exist around us. Learn about the concept of legal non-conformity, a common development issue with signs that plays out when old businesses get replaced by the new. Take a look at new signs and decide if they meet the requirements of the law in our fictitious sign ordinance. Then take a look at a recent Supreme Court case involving signage and the right to free speech in America. You'll see signs in a new way after completing this module.
Included with this module is the home study presentation, examination, and supplemental materials.
