Road Sign Boy
I like and I discover. It is a big world, but we all like to focus on what we like, even though they are insignificant in other people's eyes.
Gary YAU is 23 years old. He was diagnosed with mild Asperger syndrome when he was a child. He likes to ride on cars, and he has been fascinated by road signs outside the window since his childhood. After growing up, he noticed that the design of road signs had changed, especially in terms of the word font. The font on the road signs hand-made by prisoners in the past has been gradually replaced by a new font, and he named the old font “Prison Gothic”. He recorded all the still existing “Prison Gothic” road signs in Hong Kong, and he is determined to collect the words in “Prison Gothic” and create a database.
Because of road signs, he meets like-minded friends; and because of road signs, he experienced publishing his first book, and holding lectures and workshops. The road signs gave directions to people, and also gave directions to Gary’s life.
