Community Health System in Indianapolis, Indiana hired our firm to work on a signage and wayfinding master plan for the expansion of their Community Health North Hospital project. The signage blends a strong branding statement with architectural influences to provide a fresh approach for this hospital-wide system. The project started with a needs assessment based on user scenarios and preferences. This plan defined the various requirements of the project and was distributed to stakeholders for review and approval. Breakthrough design solutions coupled with generous cost savings for the client have demonstrated the effectiveness of a value-added design approach.
The designs for Community Health North project have been spread across the campuses at Community Health East and Community Health South. For the Community Health South project a complete redesign of the exterior signage elements are in production. The new designs update the appearance of the brand elements with low maintenance materials that are highly flexible to accept any changes on site. The new aesthetic features glowing pylons that clearly mark the entrances for vehicular and pedestrian traffic patterns.
