MadCampus at University of Washington

Mad Campus was a unique public art project at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus. Twelve emerging artists created temporary, site-specific works inspired by outdoor locations across the campus. Studio Matthews devised an identity and wayfinding system to visually connect the diverse installations and create an overall experience.

New signage will unify the University of Washington, Tacoma, campus buildings while subtly and effectively guiding students and visitors.

Studio SC (Seattle) recently completed an environmental graphics program for the University of Washington’s Molecular Engineering Building. Drawing inspiration from the work done at the MEB, they created a graphic pattern that appears throughout the building, comprised of triangles that are deconstructed and reconstructed, forming an abstract representation of nanophotonic imaging.

Studio SC (Seattle) is creating an environmental graphic and wayfinding signage program for the University of Washington’s Center for Commercialization. The department, housed in Fluke Hall, facilitates opportunities for the University’s researchers and coaches them through the commercialization process.
