INFOTOGO Toronto Wayfinding System

Merit Award
INFOTOGO Toronto Wayfinding System, Astral Media Outdoor, Kramer Design Associates

INFOTOGO addresses Toronto's need for a self-financing tourist and resident wayfinding information system that can be deployed city wide, with custom district mapping.

The form of this street furniture element breaks away from the traditional city information pillar by lifting the body of the structure off the ground from a cantilevered pole. This innovative approach is further emphasized by implementing a three-sided display system, two convex faces, and one concave face to welcome and invite the user.

Merit Award
Montreal Science Centre Signage and Branding, Bélanger Branding Design

The Montreal Science Centre, located on the city’s Old Port, provides fun and surprising exhibitions that allow visitors to explore, learn, and understand science through a variety of interactive means.

Bélanger Branding Design was tasked with upgrading the center’s branding, wayfinding, exterior signage, and the alley of shipping containers used as summer boutiques so that the whole site attracts more visitors and projects the image of “Science and Technology.”

University of Alberta Wayfinding Master Plan

Merit Award
University of Alberta Wayfinding Master Plan, Gottschalk + Ash International, Terry Heard Designers, Verburg & Associates

Established in 1908, the University of Alberta celebrated its centennial anniversary in September 2008. The original campus master plan was developed in 1910 when the Montreal architectural firm Nobbs and Hyde was hired to design the campus and its buildings. Campus development was interrupted for many years due to World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II, and the original architectural vision was essentially lost during the post-WWII building boom.

Dead Sea Scrolls

Jury Award
Dead Sea Scrolls, Royal Ontario Museum, Royal Ontario Museum

The Dead Sea Scrolls are immeasurable in their cultural and philosophical significance. Physically slight, fragile, and fugitive, the scrolls deserve display with an uncommon design sensibility—one that does not consider the quality of beauty as belonging only to the eyes. The Royal Ontario Museum’s Exhibits & Design Department based its design of the temporary exhibition on best communicating the context, content, and spiritual resonance of the scrolls.
