Thinking Caps Design (Phoenix) designed the environmental graphics, theming elements, and wayfinding for AIGA’s 2011 PIVOT conference Oct. 13-16 at the Phoenix Convention Center. The program included a bold color scheme, interactive themed elements, and unique directionals. Thinking Caps worked with AIGA staff, Sierra Signs, and Uprising Photography on the project.
Thinking Caps teamed with Westcor Partners to bring a new concept to one of their retail mall properties in Phoenix, Arizona. At Paradise Valley Mall, Paradise Valley Hospital is the sponsorship partner with Westcor for this children's play area. Thinking Caps developed an overall theme that compliments the larger community message of Paradise Valley Hospital; "A Recipe for a Healthy Me." The court features a collection of huge soft play objects, all representing five healthy lifestyle choices for kids: fresh air, exercise, good food, education and rest.
On the site of the historical Phoenix Indian School, the city of Phoenix has created the Steele Indian School Park. Thinking Caps designed the park signage program which includes native American quotes and verse etched into concrete walls, walkways, and seating elements as well as 24 interpretive columns that line the "Circle of Life" surrounding the historic school buildings. These columns provide historical information about the Phoenix Indian School as it existed for nearly 100 years.
