Jock Kinneir Social Network




T. G. Usborne, the Ministry of Transport official in charge of the Anderson Committee, then formed a new committee under Sir Walter Worboys to review signage on all other British roads, in addition to motorways. In 1964 Kinnear made Margaret Calvert a partner and renamed his practice Kinneir Calvert Associates. The partnership devised a code of carefully chosen shapes and colours that largely complied with the protocol proposed by the 1949 UN World Conference on Road and Motor Transport.


In 1957 Anderson was appointed chairman of the government committee formed to design signs for the new British motorway network. The objective was to produce signs that could be read at speed. Kinneir was commissioned as the designer. Kinneir and Calvert developed a new typeface for this commission, based on Akzidenz Grotesk. This typeface was later named Transport. It was first used for the Preston By-pass in 1958. The original road sign maquettes (models) produced by Kinneir and Calvert for a presentation to the Ministry of Transport are now held at the St Bride Library, a print and typographical library in London.


Richard “Jock” Kinneir (11 February 1917 – 23 August 1994) was a British typographer and graphic designer who, with his colleague Margaret Calvert, designed many of the road signs used throughout the United Kingdom, Crown Dependencies, and British overseas territories. Their system has become a model for modern road signage.

Kinneir was born in Hampshire in 1917. He studied engraving at the Chelsea School of Art from 1935 to 1939. After World War II, Kinneir was employed as an exhibition designer by the Central Office of Information. He next worked for the Design Research Unit, and then opened his own practice in 1956. Kinneir taught at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the graphic design department. He also taught part-time at the Chelsea School of Art.
