Design Museum Holon - Signage & Wayfinding System

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Wayfinding & Environmental Graphics / 2011

The signage and wayfinding system for the Design Museum Holon challenges common approaches by using white arrows on white walls, primarily discernible by the shadows they cast on the wall. The challenge was to create a system that is visible and easy to use, while not competing with Ron Arad’s dynamic architecture. The shape of the arrows echoes the flow and movement of the steel bands that surround the museum building, creating a unity of design throughout the museum. The system holds three scripts – Hebrew, Arabic and Latin – and includes a custom proprietary Hebrew font.
