South Australia’s Barossa Council has unveiled the design of contemporary new town entry signage for Barossa townships.
Council says the design, by local company Brady & Co, is inspired by the Barossa Ranges, the most recognisable and common iconic element linking each of the towns in the municipality.
Mayor Bim Lange said more than 40 architectural signs will be installed in townships throughout the Barossa.
“Our town signs say a lot about who we are,” Mayor Lange said.
“We wanted to create a contemporary visual statement that matches our premium reputation while paying tribute to our heritage, traditions, landscape and history.
“We consulted with our town groups and key stakeholders and believe we have now arrived at a design that resonates with both our community and visitors to our region.”
Mayor Lange said the signs retain the settlement dates of each community, and the metal finish was structurally robust to minimise graffiti or damage.
The project received Australian Government funding through the Drought Communities Programme, which provided $1 million towards four initiatives that support economic recovery for the region.
