Exit sign wars!


Apparently there is a internation war over exit signs. Its between the little running green man and the big red word.
The green sign is developed in the late 1970s by a Japanese designer named Yukio Ota and adopted for international use in 1985. The big red word sign that spell out EXIT is design in the 1970s by the American.
Some say the red sign does not read well, cause it will only understand by people who can read English and red usually mean danger, you would not like to run to something that are dangerous. And the other people say the green one doesn't look like an exit and its showing a person running, and everyone shouldn't run in panic when needed to exit...
Well, you can read abit about it here :
I would just put a red exit word under a green running man . There problem solved.
