These are Yield Triangles and can be found at intersections around the world. I first saw them at Roundabouts in Norway and had to double check which side of the road people drove on.

Hello, I’m Drew.
I’m a human-centered industrial designer with an interest in health, accessibility, inclusive design, and systems thinking. Growing up as a fish being scolded on my inability to climb trees, I know the importance of designing with and for the fliers, climbers and swimmers.
My approach to design is to use my ability to empathize with those who I am designing for and with. It is important to look at a problem from all angles. The world is full of thoughtless design that often leads to inaccessibility. With my work, I want to address these problems and make design more inclusive, enabling everyone to succeed.
I'm currently looking for full- or part-time work opportunities in the Toronto area, as well as meeting mentors or others interested in collaborating. Sound like you? Please reach in below!

While I was there I noticed countless differences that Canada and Norway treat design differently. I haven’t had much time outside of Canada so it’s hard for me to know […]
