MOCK ROAD SIGNS
GUERRILLA students were inspired by street artists from around the world that alter road signs. Many artists create their own mock signs and install them in the street. Often, these altered signs are meant to be humorous. Although, sometimes a serious message is conveyed on the altered sign. Of course, actually altering a street sign is illegal. We chose to create mock road signs. Students used the style of a sign (type set, silhouette image, composition, etc) to create a funny version.
Students used stencils to create their text, images, and borders. Stenciling onto illustration boards, they tried to use the spirit of the road sign (to give direction) while expressing a message that is a little more fun.
Here are some examples that we were inspired by:
