Metrius Trade Show Booth

Merit Award
Metrius Trade Show Booth, ReVerb

This newly launched web agency needed to generate a buzz and eclipse the much larger booths of competitors, while maintaining the consistency of its brand expression. Exploding the logo mark outward in three dimensions and creating visual depth through aluminum modular components, translucent materials, reflections, and shadows, the trade show booth presented an activated yet disciplined structural backdrop to showcase demos and presentations during the conference.

Pacific Bell Park

Jury Award
Pacific Bell Park, Debra Nichols Design

The scope of this project encompassed the complete graphic design and signage for a new downtown baseball stadium and included logo design, graphic imagery, and all directional, informational, code, identification, and concession signage. A grille motif complements the architecture by expanding on themes of natural light and exposed structure. The logo celebrates the unique San Francisco experience of a waterfront ballpark where a home run to right field just might land in the bay.

de Young Museum Signage and Environmental Graphics

San Francisco’s de Young Museum had been closed to the public since 2000 after being damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Designed by Fong & Chan and Herzog & de Meuron architects, it reopened in September 2005 on the same site in Golden Gate Park.

Environmental graphics were inspired by the building’s unique copper skin, a quilt of 7,200 panels that were punched and embossed to suggest light filtering through a canopy of leafy trees.
