The making of the Pedestrian crossing pattern

Overview• Process

Coming up with the idea and starting the search for the best implementation. Trying different numbers and positions of knots.

The art director asks to maintain the scale to make the effect easier to see.

Deciding to make a knot on only one of the existing stripes. This will allow us to use a negative stencil.

Nope. Going back to knots made of two stripes.

Using a straight knot as a basis of our design and trying to apply rope notches onto two intertwined stripes.

Sketching with chalk.

The art director asks to make rope ends a bit neater.

Finalizing the stencil and preparing the announcement.
