Vancouver Community Library Wayfinding Receives SEGD Merit Award

vancouverlibraryawardMayer/Reed was honored with a Merit Award in the 2014 SEGD Global Design Awards Program for our wayfinding design on the Vancouver Community Library. The design team of Mayer/Reed (wayfinding), The Miller Hull Partnership (architecture), and AldrichPears (interpretive installation) was among 32 recognized for excellence in environmental graphic design among 412 entries.

“A seamless integration of architecture and wayfinding—a symphony of materials and finishes—a playful interplay of scale and architecture. An imaginative wayfinding system for a multi-storied library. This project shows what a library can be as opposed to what it has been traditionally.”
– jury comment

The award was presented to Michael Reed, Partner and Kathy Fry, Associate Partner at the SEGD (Society for Experiential Graphic Design) Global Design Awards on June 7 in Atlanta, GA. The award program is the only international design awards focused on communication in the built environment.

We are honored to be acknowledged for our contributions to the bridge’s interface with two distinct neighborhoods, as well as our input on the design of the bridge itself. Now, it’s great to see the bridge in active use, with people using it every day, even making the choice to take the stairs!
