iconic infographic-snippetEarlier this month, we decided that it would be fun to celebrate the most iconic signage from around the United States. To that end, we designed an original infographic that can be found here: http://www.bluepondsigns.com/iconic-signs-infographic.html. The infographic details some of the most recognized signs from around the country, from the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles, to the neon Las Vegas sign on Las Vegas Boulevard to the Love Park sign in Philadelphia.

The top of the graphic features a map of the United States, including data on the estimated number of visitors to each location per year, represented by icons measuring millions or tens of millions of annual visits. In the course of researching the data for each iconic sign, we mostly relied on information publicly available on the internet, although the Roosevelt Arch sign in Yellowstone Park required a bit more digging. After a couple of phone calls we got put through to the Lead Historian for Yellowstone National Park (very cool), who gave us a wealth of knowledge on the arch and the sign on the arch itself, as well as a link to an online journal featuring a lengthy article on the arch.

Enjoy the infographic, have a great rest of your summer, and use the embed code listed at the bottom of the page if you would like to display the infographic on your website or blog!
