Urban&Public were engaged by the City of Sydney to develop and implement the new city-wide ‘Legible Sydney’ wayfinding system for the 10 city villages across an area of 25km². A framework was established to ensure the 600 signs including 100 map pylons were optimally located as part of a city wide pedestrian network. The final documentation packages totalled over 1500 pages of schedules, plans, visualisations, messaging and finished artwork. Thorough documentation and a process driven approach was key to each village package for preparation of tendering documents for manufacture, which has been awarded and will commence roll out in 2017.
Best practice detailed mapping included the illustration of 3D landmarks to assist in user journey–planning and new mapping for the southern part of the LGA. Meticulously designed sign templates were used for accurate, repeated artwork preparation, allowing for standardisation of large volumes of messaging, pictograms, transport information, destination times, mapping data and text–based information. Systems were essential to creating a seamless and coherent approach to implementation, ensuring information was accurate and responsive to current and future changes to transport and the public domain occurring across the rapidly changing urban landscape.
