The Big Red Word vs. the Little Green Man

Interesting piece about Fire Exit signs here and in the US. Of course, there’s no drive to unify or change the US signage because it’s as ingrained as ours… Also, a bigger problem:

Solomon points out that when the NFPA investigates fires, it never encounters circumstances “where someone says I didn’t know where the exit was because I didn’t know… what the exit sign was. When they don’t know where the exit is, it’s because there was no signage there whatsoever.”
