Downtown Rutland Partnership
Wayfinding Signage Program for Downtown Rutland
The Downtown Rutland Partnership selected the team of Charles Gibson Design and ORW Landscape Architects to create a wayfinding signage program for Downtown Rutland.
Phase One of the project called for a comprehensive evaluation of existing downtown signs according to five criteria stated in the RFP: message content, location/visibility, structure/materials/hardware, visual efficacy, and coordination with other signs. The evaluation report also included a map locating all signs in the historic downtown as well as a schedule listing each sign, its message, source of jurisdiction, and other information.
The report provided the Client with a basis for the maintenance, upgrading, or elimination of existing signs, as well as input for the recommended locations of wayfinding signage in Phase Two.
