Ohio State Interpretive Signage
Direct Embed Helps Rediscover History at the Ohio State University

If you have walked the Ohio State University campus it is most likely you have been standing on the site of the old Ohio Field torn down in 1922. University architect Bernie Costantino spearheaded the project designed by MKSK Studios in Cincinnati to commemorate the field and the legends who competed on it with signs and yard markers that were installed in spring 2017. All graphics on the markers were developed with the Direct Embed Coating System which perfectly wrapped the three dimension landmarks in historic pictures and interpretive text.
