With more than 19 million visitors per year, downtown Indianapolis is experiencing dramatic growth. A number of cultural, sporting and governmental venues are generating significant interest in the downtown, but the competing signs leading to these venues were generating confusion. The goals of developing the new wayfinding program were: to identify downtown as a destination from the highway; to enhance downtown’s public image; to better organize and present information about downtown destinations; to simplify traffic patterns by guiding drivers along specific routes; to identify public parking; and to create ongoing policies for signing venues for traffic and pedestrian use. Corbin Design’s solution for organizing the information centered on the creation of four quadrants based on the historic City Plan, originally derived from the plan for Washington, DC.
