CITY OF YORK COUNCIL

Wayfinding and Graphics Solution for Council Headquarters

Principle was commissioned to work alongside design agency SoVibrant to transform artwork created for the new City of York Council headquarters into distinctive, functional and durable signage.

The graphics requirements for the state-of-the-art new office complex were extensive and the elements Principle produced and installed included:

  • Colour coded wayfinding signage and graphics
  • Monoliths
  • External signage and directionals
  • Meeting room plaques featuring images of historical figures from York
  • Tactile and braille detailing for meeting room plaques
  • Bespoke A3 portable braille maps of the offices

Peter Appleby, City of York Council’s Property Services Manager, said: “Thanks for your continued attention to completing all the signs to the standard we hoped for.”

As a result of the client’s happiness with the standard of the work, Principle was subsequently asked to help design and manufacture a new monument for West Offices.
