42 types of buildings had to be signposted at the construction of the new railway line between Saudi Arabia and the border with Jordan. Country-specific characteristics have been taken into account in the design: all texts are implemented bilingual (Arabic and English) and cultural aspects were considered in pictogram designs. The signs also had to be resistant to the local weather conditions, such as bright sun, heat and sand storms. Uniform signage has been created for the 42 types of buildings and 16 terrain plans, by means of a completely new manual for icons, arrows, colors, board formats and fonts.
