Learn about traditional wayfinding approaches in these countries and how designers are working to translate them to the modern world.

Calori & Vanden Eynden (New York)’s regional sign program for the Upper Perkiomen Valley in southeastern Pennsylvania passed a crucial milestone with the production of design prototypes. Making this milestone even more terrific was the participation of students from the local career and technical high school, who learned about press brakes, metal shearing, painting, and the application of graphics. Students were responsible for the painting of sign panels and applying the vinyl graphics.

D.C. Citywide Wayfinding Program

Merit Award
D.C. Citywide Wayfinding Program, Downtown DC Business Improvement District, Calori & Vanden-Eynden

The DC citywide wayfinding program is unique in that it actually became a reality after more than 25 years of failed attempts to design and implement such a system. Geared to the wayfinding needs of the city's 22 million annual tourists, this signage program is a huge success among both visitors and residents. The signs often appear in location shots on the television program "The West Wing." The wayfinding system consists of pedestrian-related directional, identification, and map signs, as well as vehicular signs that interface with local roads and highways.
