The new La Tour Deloitte is the first privately owned office tower built in Montréal in 20 years. Deloitte’s Montreal staff occupies 153,000 sq. ft. of the 26-story tower, spanning seven floors in a completely agile work environment that required a new approach to wayfinding.
Design Improv(e): Give Back
Noah Jeppsonhas become known in the Experiential Graphic Design community for spearheading many urban improvement projects. His enthusiasm and spirit of volunteerism is totally contagious, so it's fitting that he should lead the Design Improv(e) session at the 2016 SEGD Conference Experience Seattle. (Have you registered yet? Let's fix that.)
Now that's the way to greet the SEGD wayfinding community!
It's not every day that SEGD gets to take over the main sign to the entrance of an airport. Especially Miami International Airport, the second largest airport in the country with just over 44 million passengers last year!
It is hard to believe, but we are already in the fourth year of modernizing SEGD, upgrading the membership benefits and still making steady progress with our performance indicators—which are pointing in the right direction. Who said this would be a quick fix?
While state highway engineers are rushing to put the brakes on use of Clearview on federal highway guide signs, the Federal Highway Administration says its decision to withdraw conditional approval of the typeface was about licensing fees as well as safety. It also clarified that Clearview is still an acceptable alternative for community wayfinding programs.
Lorenc+Yoo Design teamed with Dale & Partners to merge architecture and interior design with vintage-inspired signage, large hand-painted murals, marquee signs and even old time incandescent and neon lighting at the BB King Blues Club.

Springfield's new wayfinding signage will include walking times to each destination in order to promote a more walkable city, which in turn could lead to improvements in the populations health. That' their bet. Love to see the results.
In this balanced look at the progress Design has made in the Corporate world, one can't help but wonder if Experiential Graphic Design has not perhaps fallen behind the rest of the the design fields by nit embracing Design Thinking? Just a thought.
