The Cleveland Public Library in downtown Cleveland consists of the historic Main Building (1925), the Louis Stokes Wing (1997) and the Eastman Reading Garden which is located between the two buildings. Together they occupy an entire city block.
Our firm was given the challenge of designing and implementing a wayfinding and signage system to flow seamlessly through both buildings complementing the unique, interior architecture. The patron and visitor experience required a unified nomenclature system and visual language in support of the Library’s brand.
The result: a dynamic system of clear, unified signage that assists patrons and visitors in accessing nearly 10 million items in its collections.
