A Sign of Democracy

Jury Award
A Sign of Democracy, National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, C&G Partners

This classic, dynamic flap sign was designed and commissioned to display inspirational quotes, poems, questions, and statements about democracy rather than train timetables. Unlike normal flap signs, this one has no labels or markings on it other than the letters that appear when the flaps move. When it is blank, it is mute.

City of Newport Sign Program

Jury Award
City of Newport Sign Program, Newport Chamber of Commerce, Roll Barresi & Associates

The key to the program was to first direct visitors to the Tranportation and Visitor Center, centrally located on the Newport Waterfront. This facility has a large parking garage and serves as the transportation hub for buses and shuttles serving all parts of the city. The goal was to get visitors to parking areas as quicky and expeditiously as possible, get them out of their cars and encourage them to experience Newport at its best: on foot.

The Pennsylvania Military Museum

Jury Award
The Pennsylvania Military Museum, Purdy O'Gwynn Architects, Inc.

The Pennsylvania Military Museum was an under-attended facility occupying a popular and well-used site. (Located 300 yards back from a major highway, the museum was often mistaken for a storage facility.) Beyond adding needed visitor amenity and gallery space to the museum's interior, the architects employed environmental graphic design to broaden the significance of the building as an object in the landscape.
