MESSAGE MAPPING WISDOM
Gracefully curved bottom edges complement many architectural nuances, while a subtle side-edge stained-glass
effect, provide a faith-based connection to the stained-glass panels featured in the SJMC chapel. Each sign 'slat' is
removable for easy updates. Elevator directories featured a brochure holder and 'quick find' icon graphic panel.
All signs are ADA compliant with level 2 grade braille and feature a gracefully curved bottom edge.
Pictographs, lettering and numbers are all tactile.
Code required blade signage utilize pictographs for quick and easy recognition. Barrel mounted to the wall,
these signs feature the graceful curved bottom edge found on other signs in the wayfinding system.
Icons coupled with lettering create a sign that easily navigates visitors through the SJMC facility. Each sign is
end-edge 'tipped' with a brushed metal accent and is capable of containing up to six (6) navigational directives.
Pending on the level, these plaques vary in execution, but always remain true to the integrity of the SJMC brand.
Plaques fit together seamlessly with the established room identification signage to create one complete sign thought.
Pin-mounted lettering navigates visitors to main areas with directional arrow indications and system wide
symbology. Placement of the lettering was critical, so as to assist with navigation, while not imposing on the
aesthetic quality of the space.
Special architectural areas featured logo walls. These logo walls were designed and sized specifically to fit harmoniously
in the space without overpowering the environment. They immerse visitors in the SJMC brand and build brand equity.
