Hoover Mason Trestle Gets Durable Signs

Direct Embed (Paterson, N.J.) worked with design firms Wallace Roberts & Todd (Philadelphia) and Bluecadet (Philadelphia) on interpretive signs for the new Hoover Mason Trestle interpretive walkway in Bethlehem, Penn.

Floating 46 feet above the ground, the 1,650-ft. walkway follows the path of the historic trestle, which formerly carried fuel for steelmaking. The innovative, floating walkway is part of a redevelopment initiative focused on the former Bethlehem Steel site. Interpretive graphics profile the history of one of America’s most famous industrial icons.

In designing the interpretive graphics, WRT and Bluecadet needed a durable outdoor material that could also render sharp graphic detail. The interpretive signs combine the steel aesthetic of the mills with bright colors and sharp typography.
