Eighty designers, fabricators, and city and Chapter Chairs met at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City to hear about the latest trends, regulatory hurdles, and special skills required to develop urban wayfinding, banner programs, kiosks, and other urban projects.
With more than 19 million visitors per year, downtown Indianapolis is experiencing dramatic growth. A number of cultural, sporting and governmental venues are generating significant interest in the downtown, but the competing signs leading to these venues were generating confusion.
To anyone who lives there, or even those who have visited, it's obvious that the words "Los Angeles" and "walks" don't belong together. The great auto city was designed to connect freeways and move people in and out quickly, with very little concern for pedestrians or the walking experience.
All that may be changing thanks to Downtown Los Angeles Walks, an ambitious wayfinding/marketing program that is encouraging tourists and Angelinos alike to walk the city and discover its many destinations.
