SXSW has come to Austin, and that means a time of music filling the streets (and traffic filling the roads). In what can be a crazy and confusing time for tourists, we want to make sure that our city is as easy to navigate as possible. One way to guarantee ease during travel in a new (to you) city is having decorative street signs and sign posts that are easy to spot and effectively navigate what you are looking for. We've all been in a new city and had trouble getting around, now imagine all of the stress that could have been alleviated by having clearly marked, colorful signs. One of the unique things about SXSW in Austin is that it is in a contained part of town and thousands of music loving fans congregate there, which can make for a lot of confusion about where to go and where to look. Even for us locals things can get confusing! Custom way finding signs can make a world of difference during this madness!
We also wanted to touch base with our readers about a project that we partnered with Habitat for Humanity for this month. We loved being a part of this, and wanted to share that with you! At this year's annual donor recognition Pacesetter Dinner, Don Anderson was being honored for his contribution to funding 35 Habitat homes! Capital Streetscapes was about to help by creating custom signs to honor two remarkable Habitat for Humanity contributors. In turn, Habitat for Humanity is working on a new neighborhood that will be home to 81 families!
