don’t count your owls before they are delivered*

Those night owl logos are starting to appear on parts of the Tube, ahead of the opening of the all-night service.

The design is quite clever, modernising the old night bus owl logo and even working in the dot from the lower case "i" from TfL's preferred typeface.

There's a great TfL style guide which describes their entire signage design in around 200 pages, for anyone THAT keen.

I can't help also noticing the Seoul night bus symbol, which somehow seems to be a step on the route.

And now I'm wondering whether they will put one on platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross?
