Poster #3 -- Do You See What They See? : Cost Effective Solutions for Improving Signage

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The goal of this poster is to highlight the subtle changes one can make in a library space by using cost effective resources. Using simplicity in design as a key motto, the ECU Music Library turned outdated signage into useful visual identifiers.
A library can be a complicated experience that can overwhelm patrons looking for information. By changing the “norm” we can use less signage to identify library areas with various colors, sizes, and text. Delivering the visual cues in various forms (both digital and hard copy) can influence the ways a patron uses the library space.
These small cost-effective changes can inspire a sense of “freshness” to a library space and promote user satisfaction. We are consistently experimenting with new directs that work best for our patrons and find simplicity in design, wins every time.
