This poster is part of a series of 4 limited edition screen prints by Cherry Tenneson, entitled ‘Outward journeys must not be in the past’. The prints were developed as part of a series of signs and posters, installed in Preston’s transport hubs during April 2015, which examine the city’s significant relationship with modernist transport information design from the late 1950s to late 1960s. The artworks reflect Tenneson’s fascination with the prevalence of modernist signage in the city, such as the original Swiss influenced signs in the bus station; the railway station’s still-prevalent British Rail corporate identity signs; and the standardised motorway signage originally developed by Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert for the M6 Preston By-pass – the first motorway in the UK. Named after an error message on the National Rail website, the project emphasises the conflicting styles and messages which have developed in the city over time, and explores the role of typography within everyday urban experiences.
All four posters can be purchased here for the discounted price of £140.
