This project has been realized in 5 days. What to do after an earthquake? The project consists in a sign system to help the insiders recognize immediately the damages of the buildings in the "red zone", simplifying the procedures, which otherwise would be long and complex. Read Less

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

After the earthquake the engineers make the damage and safety assessment and plan the short term countermeasures. The reading process takes a lot of time and the forms are really complicated to understand for the rescuers. 
 
 
BRIEF & CONCEPT
 
After an earthquake reading the damage assessment is long and complex. The project is about an information system, quickly readable and adaptable, useful for rescuers to identify dangerous and damaged spots in the red zone. 
 
 
DESIGN SOLUTIONS
 
The project steps in after 1 to 3 days after the earthquake, when the engineers make the damage assessment.
There are 3 levels of information: 
- Colors reveal the danger level
- Pictograms shows the type of damage
- Texts could be pre-printed or hand written and give more details.
 
PALETTE
We have three different color level: dangerous, lightly dangerous, almost safe.
 
PICTOGRAMS
 
We create an icon and pictogram system with a specific stencil font.
Starting font: Miso.
 
SUPPORTS
 
The supports are designed to be easily producible even with materials available to the workers and rescuers.
