The Ent Center for the Arts at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs Campus is a brand-new state-of-the-art performing and visual arts educational building overlooking downtown Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak. ArtHouse Design was brought on to create a comprehensive suite of interior and exterior signage, wayfinding and donor recognition that fit the elegant, clean and simple space, but also connect to the theatrical and artistic uses of the building.
Through extensive design development, review and refinement, the ArtHouse team created crisp white neon venue entry signage to draw attention to the large amenities in the facility that also doubles as donor recognition to identify high-donation named spaces. The neon-inspired show business theme also carried into a large donor recognition wall, where donors’ signatures are rendered in blue neon.
The interior and exterior signage make use of building finishes such as brushed aluminum, flat-lock metal paneling and glass to unify the visitor experience and provide an elegant touch from the exterior to the interior spaces. The wayfinding signage is simple, elegant and clear, directing visitors, students, staff and performers through the space in a smooth way. The Ent Center for the Arts will surely become an iconic landmark in the Colorado Springs art and performing arts scenes and the elegant, thoughtful design will allow for longevity and functionality for many years to come.
