Setting the foundation

Not so long ago, on July 3, 1973, five visionary architectural sign designers, led by John Berry of Detroit architectural firm Smith, Hinchman & Grylls, came together to solve the problem of using graphics and information to move people through complex environments. They saw a critical need to create an agreed-upon and shared set of signage standards and symbols, and from there, SEGD (known as the Society of Environmental Graphics Designers) was formed.

In elementary school, Lauren Stern’s love for books blossomed. For several years, she and her classmates were coached through writing and illustration projects, resulting in hard-bound books for each student to enjoy. This process eventually became the seed of a big idea for Lauren. Her first book, “Signs Have Much to Say” is scheduled for publication in early 2023.

On the 32nd Anniversary of the ADA, Reflections by Margaret Drew, Mayer/Reed Designer
On the 32nd Anniversary of the ADA, Reflections by Margaret Drew, Mayer/Reed Designer 

Read Time: 3 minutes
I’m 3’6”. Life at this altitude has given me a unique perspective on the built world and inspired me as both a designer and an advocate for disability rights. For those of us in the design world, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a familiar standard; the civil rights law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation and guarantees access to public and private places that are open to the general public. On July 26, 2022, the ADA celebrated its 32nd anniversary. This year, I turned 33. It’s humbling to know that I am the last generation born before this groundbreaking act was signed into law.

ArtHouse Design created a name, brand, and wayfinding package for the upscale Chroma Apartments by Shea Properties. Taking inspiration from the project’s colorful name, ArtHouse designed a one-of-a-kind monument sign that glows internally, as well as a full suite of supporting wayfinding and theming elements.

Each placemaking element was designed with the details in mind. The gravity-defying scale of the "Welcome Home" letters and the luminescent  monument signs make an impact as you venture through the property.
