Comic Book Street Lamps Transform Sidewalks Into A Continuous Story [Pics]

Turn Me On Design installed lights that feature quirky images and characters in Montreal.

Creative studio Turn Me On Design installed comic book-inspired street lamps along Avenue Mont-Royal in Montreal, Canada.

The studio won a 2012 competition by the Development Corporation of Mount Royal Avenue with the cartoon-like street lamps project called IDEA-O-RAMA.

The street lamps are shaped like comic book speech balloons and feature fun and quirky cartoon characters. The lights of the street lamps change colors throughout the day — making them visible at any time.

The display plates can also be easily changed, which hints that the theme for the lamps could differ according to the season or event.

The illustrations and graphics were created by graphic designers Astro and Jean-François Poliquin.

The lamps are designed to reflect the identity and energy of the area, as well as brighten up the street and people’s days.
