pedestrian wayfinding system
In 2005 we were appointed by JCDecaux to develop an innovative and exemplary wayfinding system for the City of Dublin. In close partnership with the city council, we created a range of information graphics and bespoke street furniture products that collectively deliver a unique identity befitting a city like Dublin. The system includes signage structures, advertising billboards, a hand-held map and digital on-line maps. Cutting edge, and always inclusive, the wayfinding system includes structures with illuminated maps to ensure that information is legible 24/7. And in keeping with Dublin's 'green' ethos, the mapping system is also consistently applied on all bike hire terminals across JCDecaux's bicycle scheme. Programmed for late 2012, the city information system will be further extended into Dublin Docklands. In preparation we have extended the map reach and are supporting the programme of installation, which will see the existing Docklands sign system (designed by fwdesign in 2004) become surplus to requirements. Designed with a 25 year life expectancy Docklands signage structures are too good to scrap and as a great example of sustainable design, we are supporting the relocation of the redundant signage structures which will be factory refurbished to give them a second lease of life as a newly branded signage system for the neighbouring town of Dún Laoghaire.
