Paper prototype for testing Nikki Sylianteng’s redesigned parking sign concept

Alumni Nikki Sylianteng is redesigning the parking sign, and needs your help:

I’m testing out a redesign for the ubiquitous but notoriously confusing parking sign. I’m going guerrilla-style and targeting innocent signs, starting with the one under my window. I want to get feedback from real drivers and people like you.Business Insider featured the redesign recently, calling it “easy to use,” and even submitted a suggestion of their own:It’s easy to use: Just check the day and time, and see if parking is allowed, and for how long. We’d suggest breaking up the Monday-Friday block, since on many streets, parking isn’t allowed on Tuesday and Friday mornings, for example. But that wouldn’t be a major change.

Nice work, Nikki! Sign up to go along for the ride.
