Environmental Graphics for Schools
Environmental Graphic Design (EDG) involves many design disciplines including graphic, architectural, interior, landscape, and industrial design all related to the visual aspects of wayfinding, communicating identity and information, and shaping the idea of creating experiences that connect people to place.
It includes dimensional (letters, logos), wall graphics, and window (vinyl and frosted) graphics.
Environmental graphics can make a good educational experience great, by introducing inspiration, meaning, and purpose into the school.
We have the capability to achieve a lot of different kinds of looks that will add great inspiration and pride in your school. Whatever your insights – updates, changes, or something completely new and different, we can make it happen.
One of our favorite customers is Colorado Early Colleges which is a network of public charter schools and some of the best schools in Colorado. We helped them with an environmental graphics project that included three different types of wall-mounted signs.
School Mission Statement Sign
- Acrylic letters with brushed aluminum finish mounted on a non-glare clear acrylic panel. The entire sign is then mounted on the wall with brushed metal standoffs.
- Our client wanted the acrylic letters mounted to a clear panel to give the display more depth and dimension.
School Lobby Sign
- Foam dimensional letters with brushed metal laminate mounted to the wall with very high bond (VHB) double-sided tape.
- These thick letters are a great focal point of the interior space that acts as a great reminder of the organization’s core values.
School Lobby Logo
- Brushed aluminum logo and letters stood off with sleeve spacers and stud mounted to the wall
To install all the graphics (letters and logos), we use a cardboard template or stencil which is placed on the wall or other substrate being used. This template is vitally important in the installation phase of the project.
