Hunt Design (Pasadena, Calif.) created signage for Old Pasadena in 1984, in one of the first urban wayfinding programs. Now—almost 30 years later—and after two years of planning, design, and approvals, the designs for the citywide sign program are popping up all over Pasadena. The 300-sign effort displays directions to more than 40 important destinations and unifies the city’s four downtown districts with similar, but color-coded, elements.

Nova Polymers (Fairfield, N.J.) announced that, in a poll of sign industry professionals including sign fabricators and architectural designers, NovAcryl Designer Series photopolymer was considered to be artwork rather than wayfinding signage. The poll reinforces the company’s description of its NovAcryl sign fabrication material as the “Designer Series” since signs can be fabricated from a very diverse range of substrates, allowing for unlimited artistic design.
