Signage guides and enhances how people experience
your space.

Whether your wayfinding program takes shape in an interior or exterior environment, our goal remains the same—to design a system that combines brand with navigation.

Wayfinding is a synchronized system of visual elements, commonly signs, that convey and announce information to people navigating through places. We design continuity through visual cues in materials, symbols, colors, typography and scale to ensure a cohesive approach where the design of the sign system, the brand and the environment work together. Once we’ve identifying the landscape and narrowed the audience, we explore patterns and movement to develop an appropriate cadence for location planning. All of these considerations become the connections that guide people through your environment.

If You Build It, How Will They Get There?

It’s curious how often wayfinding and branded signage programs are left until the tail-end of a development project, often during construction and sometimes only as a missing requirement for occupancy. There is an enormous opportunity for more thoughtfully integrated approaches to wayfinding that ensure the intended markets and neighbors of your real property assets know where they are and how to get there.
