Broken City Lab met in December of last year to visualize, create, and link our goals for 2009 and created a large mind map to help with this process. One of the ideas brought up at this time was the following: create parking tickets that resemble those distributed by City of Windsor or University of Windsor Parking Service officials, but spin the ticket information in a way that compliments the owner of the vehicle instead of notifies him or her of impending fines. The first series of tickets display the message “operation of fuel efficient vehicle” in the space where “parking violation” or something similar would usually appear. I’ve posted the initial ticket design and two examples of the types of vehicles receiving these tickets. This will most likely be an ongoing process that I will complete throughout the summer, but since the City of Windsor Parking Services is currently on strike, these tickets should appear slightly confusing to the vehicle owners.
Presumably, the parking tickets will be more effective in creating anticipation when the text is facing down, but for documentary purposes, I`ve placed them text-up.
This is the working design for the parking ticket project. Spaces are left for vehicle identification purposes and the Broken City Lab website appears at the top left corner.

Glad you got these up Josh! Any ideas for the next Batch??
Not quite! I’d like to keep it auto-related, but I haven’t thought about it much. I’m kind of shifting my focus to Green Corridor. It’s a little taxing being a stenographer in that class, though I really like it so far. I just can’t wait to get to work. I prefer working to doing the committee thing. Noel is very intriguing by the way; I like the way he speaks. Anyways, I am going on and on…
I spoke to a number of people who really liked this project Josh!!!
Really? That’s awesome. Were they people from our school?
Yeah, some people in the Green Corridor class. How many tickets did you give out the other day?
Only a few. I went out to get some things from Shopper’s between reading sessions. I usually give out more when I’m in a large parking lot.
brought to my attention by colleagues at work…
would this be a worthwhile addition?
“This ticket is recyclable”
