Wayfinding and signage with Ian Whybrow

We producted the graphic identity and guidelines for the inauguration of a new contemporary art centre designed by David Chipperfield Architects, in Margate. The identity was based on a modified mono-spaced typeface, best expressed in the modular tiled entrance board used to announce exhibitions and events, and as a poème espace for artist interventions. The interior directional, identification and statutory signs are silkscreened directly onto surfaces without disruption to wall planes or architecture. The sign area is defined with a gloss-painted panel in contrast to the matt white gallery wall.

In addition to the overall identity and scheme we have produced exhibition graphics and publications for the opening exhibition ‘Revealed’, and more recently ‘Curiosity: Art and the Pleasures of Knowing’, curated by Brian Dillon.
