Cygnus worked with both Colliers International and Shape Architects to provide wayfinding and signage that complements the architecture of the facility. Later on in the project, Cygnus worked directly with the Canadian Cancer Society to design donor recognition signage for amenity and room identification. The Canadian Cancer Society brand identity was also reflected in the donor recognition wall in the form of a daffodil. The Canadian Cancer Society anticipates that the centre will become a national leader in research and innovation for cancer prevention and survivor support by connecting discoveries more rapidly to prevention and support programs.The Centre for Cancer Prevention and Support is a fully expanded and ren- ovated 6,500 square metre facility located in Vancouver, BC.
