Home Depot Design Center

Merit Award
Home Depot Design Center, Home Depot, Little

The Home Depot Design Center is the next-generation store concept by the venerable big-box retailer. In this innovative concept, the second-largest retailer in the world aimed to shed its unrefined warehouse image, suitable for contractors and hard-core do-it-yourselfers, in favor of a more polished look to attract a younger, urban demographic with a “do-it-for-me” mentality and a need for complete design solutions.

Westside Children's Center

Merit Award, Lot with a Little
Westside Children's Center, Lane + Lane Inc. Design Office

The designers sough to create a child-focused, friendly, easy-to-understand environmental graphic design program that remained consistent with the identity that they previously established – the identity consists of five children's hands of different shades arranged to form a star-like shape. They used handprints from children involved in Westside Children's Center programs as the centerpiece of the system. The primary focus was to design everything with the child in mind as well as adhere to necessary code requirements.

Crate & Barrel World Headquarters Signage

Jury Award
Crate & Barrel World Headquarters Signage, Calori & Vanden-Eynden/Design Consultants

The headquarters building of Crate & Barrel is a sleek, modernist structure designed by Perkins and Will and located within a landscaped campus-like setting. The comprehensive exterior and interior graphics and wayfinding system ranged from monumental site identification signs to room identification signs and workstation nameplates. The interior sign program constituted a large part of the overall wayfinding system.

Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk

Jury Award
Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk, Johns Hopkins University, Cloud Gehshan Associates

This network of twelve computerized kiosks creates one-stop wayfinding centers for visitors. The i-Sites integrate existing leading-edge technology with customized components and software. A psychologist worked with the design team on the user interface; redundancy (where users are offered more than one way to get information) was key to the design, which was extensively field-tested. Although high-tech, the low-profile units are designed to fit into a campus where the traditional architecture and park-like grounds are paramount.
