Whether you’re using wooden crates for a pop-up or jersey barriers for interim design projects, barrier elements can be used as a canvas allowing you to share a message, thank sponsors, or integrate public art into the project. The four images to the left illustrate how wooden crates (see spec sheet on page 36) were used to not only protect people bicycling, but to also thank project sponsors by spray painting their logos onto the planters with a stencil.
