Cygnus has acted as the University of Alberta’s Wayfinding Consultant of Record since 2007. Our team has managed planning, design and delivery management services for all campus projects with a combined implementation value over $600,000.

Directories, overhead signs and other major components are to be extendable such that adding rows or layers of information is seamless. Wall mount signage is to consist of multi-paneled, painted and baked aluminum components that secure to a common rigid base. Panels are “locked-in” to base, such only facility staff with a key or equivalent component can remove the panels. Graphics are to be computer-cut vinyl with digitally imaged inkjet details as required.
