Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum is an iconic facility sited in an old power station. Since opening in 1988, the museum’s original wayfinding system had been added to many times, becoming fragmented and no longer meeting functional requirements or communicating the appropriate image for a contemporary, dynamic museum.
Frost Design was invited to design a new internal wayfinding system, integrating identification and directional signage to facilities, temporary exhibits, and the museum’s permanent collection.
Using up-to-the-minute film and printing technology and imagery that combines the traditions of murals, grotesques, and symbols, Katrin Olina created an immersive, otherworldly destination in Cristal Bar, a 1,200-sq.-ft. bar in a Hong Kong high-rise. Using 3M graphic film, The Icelandic designer covered every wall, ceiling, and floor surface in imagery, creating a huge, seamless painting that spans the bar’s four interconnected spaces.
Signs of Love and Signs of the Holidays were two separate guerrilla street sign postings in downtown Reno. Designed to inspire double takes and smiles, the signs were posted on existing sign poles the night before Valentine’s Day 2007 and during the holiday season in 2005. The Glenn Group wrote sign copy, created layouts for the printer, and hung the signs.
The renovation of the AMC Cinema at Universal City Walk has raised the bar for movie-going experiences in Los Angeles. After large architectural gestures proved to be unfeasible, the design team was brought on to make a bold graphic statement within the confines of the existing structure and a limited budget. The first task was to create the “big idea” that the targeted demographic would respond to. Since the majority of City Walk movie-goers are 18 to 25 years old, the design team created a visual statement that would appeal to this age group.
