Thx, badmonkey0001.

So many requirements!

Arrow pointing the direction from the sign to the district
White/grey text on a blue field with red accents (colors came from the spec if I remember)
Images of landmarks and/or features of the district on the left side of the sign
Name of the district written in US English with a native translation below
Signmakers marks in the lower right within the blue field
Relative dimensions (aspect ratio)
Location of mounting holes
Pattern and type of reflective material (which I imitated)
A border around the sign with a certain width (the grey border)
