@cecilia_ulfsdotter have also asked whether this project could, besides the sign, result in an additional sign.
I took the F, placed it somewhere, made a test. But, can’t find the F!
So, I made another one, in cardboard. I’ve used a bit of diffusion plastic from @Ollxor. This plastic is great, and we can order to cover the rest, but I think we have a lot “in stock” if Olle wants to sell/gift it. I used some WS2812B 5V LED’s from @ubbesen since they were ideally placed, but we would most likely place our LED’s in a pattern that is convenient and effective.
5. The LED’s should be no closer than 1cm (or further away than 2cm), or else the diffusion is not optimal.
As I see it, we have 2 paths forward (limiting my imagination heavily here).
- We decide on the font. Perhaps Annie can help prep the files (since I failed). Tobi plasma-cuts the letters in the 50x50 white sheets and we place them on the container. Ideally, we should paint the white sheets since they are but ugly when white.
- We attach our lights to the current Frihamnstorget sign (what was wrong with this one? @SofiaAnner)
OR (my currently fave suggestion)
- We don’t write FRIHAMNSTORGET but instead choose something a bit more slick as a complement to the already existing sign. Something like “FT” or the logo. This would be WAY faster/easier to create and might instil the same curiosity of the bypassers. It might even be the best solution in terms of creating a strong identity for the space.
Let me know what you think. I’ll be away until August 12, but happy if these letters get made somehow and then I can attach the lights.
