A new wayfinding system for K College campus in Kent. With a strong emphasis on clarity and consistency the new system is designed help students, staff and visitors quickly familiarize themselves with the layout of the new building and alleviate confusion.
A new series of symbols has been designed to allow for easy identification of key facilities whilst providing handy navigational prompts that can be incorporated into a variety of different signs throughout the college.
Consistent colour coding has been employed so that users can clearly distinguish between the 4 main buildings (Cherry, Ash, Birch and Maple) by matching the colour of the signs to the interior decor of the corridors.
Large scale arrows and numbers have been used make key information as clear as possible in the busy corridors. Additionally they help make the vast corridor spaces appear much more interesting and distinguishable for people travelling through them.
Signika was chosen as the ideal typeface for this project. Developed specifically for wayfinding its clear and gentle appearance helps the new signage uphold a more welcoming atmosphere when addressing the users of the college.
