Université de l’Ontario français
The Université de l’Ontario français is the only French-language public university in Toronto. Cygnus was invited by Gow Hastings’ architectural team to develop interior signage and wayfinding for the interior fit-out at 9 Lower Jarvis St. The signage program is intended to be subtle and minimalist in order to not draw attention away from Gow Hastings’ interior design vision, which utilizes bold colours and environmental graphics to create an impactful space. The French-language university presented unique challenges, being the only project worked on by Cygnus that does not include any English text.
