The College of DuPage, a 31,000-student community college located in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, selected KMA Design to create an extensive interior and exterior signage program for its 273-acre campus as part of a $300 million renovation. The College’s existing exterior signage was deteriorating, and the interior signage needed reevaluated.
KMA Design created a signage and wayfinding system for the College’s entire campus, including its athletic complex. The design concept incorporated the school’s colors into a more modern color scheme, combining greens and grays with metallic-based colors.
Signage was created utilizing materials such as aluminum, acrylic, vinyl, flex face and LED illumination.
Interior signage includes room identification, department identification, entrance and exit identification, wall-mounted and overhead directories, banners and a dedication plaque.
Exterior signage includes department identification, free-standing entrance and building identification, entrance gateways, directories, vehicular and pedestrian directionals, vehicular informationals, banners and parking identification.
