Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)
Environmental Graphics and Icon Development
Since 1865, WPI has endeavored to educate men and women in science and engineering and encourage them to apply their knowledge in ways that would benefit society. To highlight this mission, we were commissioned to design a series of graphics depicting 12 areas in which WPI alumni have made positive contributions throughout the world. These icons would be put on permanent display in the school’s new Campus Center.
Given the number of graphics and how they would be exhibited (on a wall), we focused on creating a series in which each individual icon would complement the others. A simple presentation successfully accommodated the wall display.
