Signage Master Plan and Standards Manual

Client: Hospital for Sick Children

  • Hospital for Sick Children

    KDA was retained to develop an overall wayfinding master plan that included a detailed guidelines and specifications manual for all interior and exterior signage. To address the needs of the hospital’s new expansion program and the increase of its growing multi-cultural staff, patients, and visitors, KDA designed a signage program that relied less on text and more on non-verbal wayfinding in the form of icons, arrows, colours and style-hierarchy.

    Additionally, KDA created a custom-designed series of appealing ‘child-friendly’ pictograms to coordinate with the hospital’s existing International Pictogram standard.
