Montréal Street Signs


Here is just a small sampling of public street signs in Montréal, taken during a recent visit. While there were many more I wasn’t able to get photos of, I do hope you enjoy these as much as I did. It was interesting to see how differently graphics were drawn from the American versions I’m used to. Generally, there’s a deeper level of detail to the graphics. Some signs took a second to figure out. But as a graphic designer, I really enjoyed seeing different solutions of graphic communication.

The photo above I call “double cherries”. It is actually a graphic to show the Siamese connection for the fire department.






The photo on the left is the only interior sign in this grouping. It’s a small sign posted in the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal to remind visitors to keep quiet while in the church.
