Liminal Gallery is delighted to present ‘Roadworks’, an exhibition by renowned graphic designer Margaret Calvert, best known for her work with Jock Kinneir on the design of a radical new road signing system for the UK, initiated in 1965.
‘Roadworks’ exhibits work that is both serious and playful.
She is also responsible for designing ‘Calvert’, used to sign the Tyne and Wear Metro, which opened in 1980, and more recently Rail Alphabet 2, in collaboration with Henrik Kubel, for Network Rail, which will be implemented across all Network Rail Stations and architectural publications. With a career spanning several decades, her work in the public domain is often seen to shape the Country’s visual identity. Calvert was made a Royal Designer for Industry in 2011, and awarded an OBE for services to Road Safety and Typography.
