Signs and iconagraphy for the Arboretum in Gothenburg by Anders Wallner, Gustav karlsson

An experiment in sign and icon design, made for the Arboretum in Gothenburg.
We wanted to see how far you could simplify the maps and information on the arboretum in Gothenburg. The image shows to signs put up in the arboretum, the purple one is an index and a map over the forrest and the purple one is the sign of the Japanese Poplar tree. The colors are chosen to stand out in the forrest and to serve as complementary colors for the nature.
