Signage Project

Signage Project

The magnificent campus of AUC has always faced the challenge of way-finding. The new AUC signage system is meant to facilitate movement and build a better network between departments, offices, services, and students. The intention is to make the campus harmonious by having a consistent visual identity. The first phase consisted of creating a new map and representative iconography. The signage system is a result of intensive research on way-finding problem areas in AUC. These areas will now be key decision points in the new navigation system. The signage team is looking forward to launching the new project soon.
