Signage Design and Way Finding
Working closely with Diversity Architects, we referenced the signature horizontal language of the OCC’s facade in adopting consistently linear visual language and bespoke broken typeface for the building’s signage and way finding.
The stencil-spray application of the signage design softened the grandeur of the OCC building. The off-black colour directly echoes the architect’s palette, the yellow is a response to the egg-shaped and yolk-coloured central architectural form. We wove a visual thread leading from the street into the foyer and all the way up to the seventh floor, uniting architecture with graphics and optically acclimatising the visitor.
