Project description

Whether it's in schools or libraries, it's been a long time since the concept of signage got any love. Surely you remember the famous brown signs with white writing? The famous black and white stick-figure bathroom signs? We figured we'd change that.

Since its arrival, the Donalda-Charron Library has made many other libraries jealous. There is no better place to think, read or learn. Everything is white, the wood is the master of the place and there are windows all over. To match the space , we needed a unique signage concept. So we let the location and the trees inspire us and we did something completely different. Since printing and throwing away paper is completely unnecessary, we went with something much more practical. Wooden letters and numbers to write whatever you want, a bit like Scrabble.

The idea worked better than we expected because now, all the other libraries in the area asked if they could have it too. Of course, we said yes!
