Akron Civic Wayfinding

Client: Myers School of Art/Akron Civic Theater
Year: Fall 2020

The Akron Civic Theater is a staple of downtown Akron. This historic theater has been in Akron for decades and has recently undergone major renovations. As part of these renovations a group of my peers and I were assigned the job of redesigning the signage and way finding systems used within the Akron Civic Theater.

This project worked to create signage that was fitting of the regal attitude and space of the Akron Civic. I personally redesigned all way finding signage including main directional signs, door and level signs, as well as all office signs for the new office. I also designed a new app from the ground up to function as the Akron Civic’s digital ticket office. This app features digital ticket purchasing, digital seat selection, and handheld guide to finding your seat.

The final project including my work was presented and pitched to the Akron Civic management to simulate real, large client work.
