Street Signs in Haarlem (NL)

Since 2010 new street signs are placed in the city of Haarlem for which DTL Haarlemmer is used. The design agency Bureau Arjan Karssen selected the seriffed version for the street signs in the historic city centre, and the accompanying sans serif is used on two different signs for the pre- and post World War ii parts of the city.

The new designs are an attempt to halt the proliferation of street sign variants in Haarlem.
