Over four years our system of graphics for UW construction sites has rolled out across over ten locations. Playful illustrations of dorm living wrapped student housing sites, while at the oldest building on campus, historic imagery shows campus at the turn of the century. Meanwhile we have been developing permanent wayfinding for the University’s 600+ acre campus, slated to roll out in 2016.
