The signs below are produced by 1dea in collaboration with thinc design.
The highest priority project stemming from thinc design’s 2016 Kingston Waterfront Master Plan was the development and implementation of a strategy for wayfinding, celebration and promotion of Kingston’s waterfront. thinc design collaborated with Kingston based 1dea to develop an exciting and intuitive approach to encourage visitors to explore Kingston’s 280 kilometres of waterfront using a variety of techniques including signage (blazes, icons and kiosks), the web, and public art.
The project included community consultation, the development of a family of signs (major and minor kiosks, directional signs and trail markers), interpretation, mapping, and selection of sign locations, contract documents and contract administration. The signs are scheduled to be installed in 2019.
