It turns out that the Eisenhower Expressway (east-west expressway connecting downtown Chicago with Chicago neighborhoods and western suburbs) has its own logo and website. Funny how the words “Eisenhower” and “Expressway” are crammed together in the logo. It resembles the typical traffic jams that occur on the Ike.
What’s the difference between a highway and an expressway? Someone told me last year, and i forget. I always thought they were the same. But apparently, they are not the same.
Your interpretation on the three bands is interesting, spudart. (westbound, eastbound, public).
I think the way the bands merge together represents traffic congestion. I’m sure the intention was for the bands to be radiating leftward. But that contradicts the natural flow of the logo. We read the word left to right. So it makes sense for the graphic to be read left to right. It’s completely unnatural to read the graphic right to left, THEN to swing around and read the word, EISENHOBER. (“b” intentionally replacing “h”, snicker, snicker)
I’m guessing that expressways have more exit and entrance ramps than highways.
