University of Vermont Wayfinding & Design Standards

As part of an ongoing consultancy to Campus Planning Services, LandWorks has implemented an award-winning pedestrian and automobile wayfinding system for the University of Vermont campus. In addition to design, tasks integral to the project were our orchestration of extensive planning and participation, permitting and ordinance revision, and oversight of fabrication. A manual of Design Standards was developed to guide future installations and maintenance. The project has been widely acknowledged as a major improvement to the UVM community and its identity, and has been awarded a Certificate of Merit by the Vermont Planners Association, and was also featured in Big Graphics on Campus (Signs of the Times, Oct. ‘03). Also, the solar powered pedestrian directories and a sign interpreting UVM’s solar panels were featured in a Society of Environmental Graphic Design article on “green” signs.
