Kindergarten Marktstrasse Signaletik

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Graphic Design / Wayfinding & Environmental Graphics / 2017

We developed a wayfinding system for the new building at Kindergarten Marktstraße. We had the idea of letting the children themselves come up with their own designs during the building phase.

A non-place like a parking garage becomes a linchpin of children’s imagination throughout their drawings.

The colour concept enables to differentiate the four classrooms.

Leading towards the emerging sense of type, a further and careful adaptation process inspired a typographical and symbolic wayfinding system, suited to be friendly but distinctive and blend in perfectly.
