New "Welcome to Arizona" Highway Signs

Recommended Posts

The State of Arizona unveiled not one, but six, new highway signs for motorists entering the state.  They will reportedly replace the current ones that have been in place for over 30 years.  This isn't a contest to select a winner as apparently all will be in use.  No initial word on the location for each.

 

They give off a national park poster vibe and are all very unique.

Those are all pretty awesome. 

 

WELCOME TO ILLINOIS signs should have:

  • a series of politicians in prison
  • a meth addict toothlessly grinning while hitting a shake-and-bake soda bottle
  • an obese man shirtlessly driving through a Chicagoland toll with diabetes medication scattered on the passenger seat
  • a Cardinals fan in a MAGA hat and shouting "Them goddamn Madigans!" to a blue sky, lying along a barren stretch on I-57

Illinois: even our government center is a shopping mall

Someone in Arizona learned how to use "Image trace" on Illustrator

That's the Cutout filter in Photoshop, trust me, I've made that sucker do more lifting than a Jersey guido

That actually isn't too bad of an update, looking at that one. But why six?

 

From the article:

Quote

They're six of Arizona's most iconic landscape, including the Grand Canyon, Saguaro National Park, Sedona’s Red Rocks, Horseshoe Bend, Flagstaff’s San Francisco Peaks and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

I'm just wondering about the placement of these. Are they going to have the Grand Canyon sign around the northern boundaries of the state? Or like the Saguaro State Park one around Interstate 19 and the southern boundaries?

That placement would make the most sense. It would be weird to have the Grand Canyon sign at the southern boundary and the Saguaro one at the northern boundary.

And all that in blaze orange and black, since this state forever got some kind of road construction going on...

I've long been partial to this old-school sign:

Unpopular opinion amongst my fellow Sconnies perhaps, but this and so much else about Wisconsin's branding needs a massive overhaul.  A lot of it hasn't been updated since 1990 or so and references industries that have pretty much died since then.

This is my kind of topic!

 

There's not a lot I can say that I like about driving into or through Minnesota (particularly the state route signs that from any further than about 100 feet away can easily be mistaken for interstate signs since they're the same base color--and let's not talk about the Twin Cities right now), but there's no denying they put some money into their welcome signs...

They even go so far as to landscape these things, which I've yet to see any other state do with such regularity:

I don't wanna know what it costs them to produce or plant these things, but IMO they're the best in the country...by a country mile.

Oregon has been replacing these:

with these:

Solid upgrade, but it bothers me that the two Os in Oregon have different ratios of thickness in the center hole of the O.
