Park Provider // Olivia Ammirati
Park Provider is a project that provides signage to private parks and preserves that aren’t state or nationally owned. State parks have a unified system of how signage, by law, needs to look and how to create these signs whereas privately owned parks do not. I used Mill Brook Preserve, a locally owned park in New Paltz, as my case study. Throughout my process, I explored the importance of hierarchy in signage as well as the benefits of using icons and typography to get across information in a clear and concise manner. Communicating information and direction clearly is the whole point of signage and my project helps aid in this for places that don’t have signage or don’t have signage that communicates well.
