[+] WSU GARAGE WAYFINDING
Hamilton Anderson was selected to provide complete design and documentation services for the new Wayne State University Welcome Center Garage on a highly visible site along Warren Avenue between Woodward and Cass in Detroit. Along with the building design, a comprehensive signage system was created, with clear, concise direction being the main focus. A different color was assigned to each level and every sign on that level, aside from those that needed to be ADA compliant, used that corresponding color. A graphic of simple squares was used to create a consistent theme throughout the signage. The deceptively simple design is integrated with the architecture of the Welcome Center and bookstore by a line of paving that connects the building’s facades and integrates the intimate interior spaces with the more public edge along Warren.
