Festival of Britain signage, Milner Gray, Robin Day, Sylvia Read, Kenneth Lamble and John Messenger, 1951

Robin was part of a team of designers who developed the signage for the Festival, along with Milner Gray and Sylvia Reid. This sculptural signpost bears his hallmark, providing a practical and elegant solution to the need for stable free-standing directional signs.
