The theme of this project was, while working in groups, to choose any part of Fairmount Park and create an event that we think would work well in that space. With creating the event, we had to design at least 3 types of signage that would be used.
My group and I chose to do a Day of the Dead event at Laurel Hill Cemetery.
We designed a logo for the event and screen printed it to go along with typical Mexican signage.
We chose teal, pink yellow and gray for our color palette and decided on 3 types of signage: 'don't sit on the tombs', directional and map. We also did a skull sculpture, a flower design and projected text for the archway.
Also, since we screen printed our logo we decided to also screen print our own shirts. Read Less
Sign Family: Don't sit on the tombs and directional signage that would be throughout the designated path in the cemetery.
Sign Family: Map that would be located at the entrance of the cemetery to show which path to follow.
Skull sculpture that would be suspended at the end of our path to appear as it's floating. It would be made of out malleable translucent material so we can have lights in it that would shine through.
(Left) Using flowers to wrap around the arch and columns with our suspended logo to let people know they have arrived. (Right)Day of the Dead proverb in English and Spanish that would be projected inside the archway so people can read it as they enter and exit.
