Signboard of Train Information 
East Japan Railway Company/ Shin-Yosha Corporation

Category: Environment Date: 2002

This signage system is the device to inform passengers of the boarding position of a train that is located in a different position for various kinds of cars. The sign for the train number, posted in the right angle against a platform and slightly tilt toward the inner side of the platform, makes visual recognition easy in distance. Also train information posted parallel to the platform was designed with the face slightly tilted downward for legibility in distance. The design could reduce an oppressive impression as a product installed overhead by restraining its physical volume. These conditions were made available by organizing the signboard surface in two different angles into a "panel" and a "column with square cross section" as a primary form.
