Theatre in the Park Wayfinding System


Project Brief

El dorado inc designed a dressing facility for Johnson County Parks & Recreation’s Theatre in the Park. I worked closely with the architectural design team to develop a signage and wayfinding system for the project. The building is divided into two identical dressing rooms, with entry points on opposite sides of each room. To prevent performers from becoming disoriented in the space we color coded the rooms, added pops of color at the entrances, and provided simple wayfinding graphics pointing them to the direction of the stage. The bright interior colors complement the dark exterior. At night, the colors add a warm glow as they diffuse through the translucent exterior walls.
