I am currently taking an environmental design class, and so far it’s been pretty fun. Our current project is to create a way-finding and signage system for a building. It’s been a little difficult to think outside the box, but what’s most important is that there’s that level of consistency with all the signage.

I was really inspired by this signage done by Australian based studio, Collider for the Surry Hills Library in Sydney. A lot is left to the texture and materials the signage was built out of to communicate. Each module not only holds the description of the destination but also tilts towards that destination, which I thought was pretty damn cool. More images below the fold.
