Red Dot Awards 2020: Wayfinding signage design for ABB

This year, jury of Red Dot Awards selected 6992 projects divided into three main categories. We are happy to be among the others nominated in brands & communication category.

The Red Dot Awards jury evaluated submitted works based on criteria such as innovation, quality, functionality, and ecology. We are happy they awarded our Wayfinding in ABB’s Krakow office project.

Above all, the idea was to make a clear system of signs which facilitates the building of the new ABB office, High5ive in Kraków. Therefore, we have prepared the project to suit the architecture and interior design and to be consistent with ABB’s visual identification. The outcome transformed an ordinary office into a friendly space.

Firstly, we produced makeshift signage using less durable materials. In addition, we checked the visibility of the signs in the actual light, with final decoration and furnishing. In conclusion, after a month we made final improvements in cooperation with the teams occupying given floors. All this allowed us to create a clear functional system consistent with ABB’s brand identity.
