UC Davis design students have developed new ideas for wayfinding and interpretive exhibition environments at Davis City Hall. This project introduces students to the environmental graphic design process: analyzing existing signage and considering visitors’ needs, researching contemporary design precedents, sketching ideas, investigating possible materials for construction, developing a cohesive signage system, specifying color, typography and symbols, and finally creating final elevations and floor plans.
Working with renowned design faculty, Master of Fine Arts students explore the broader topic of “Design” through specific design disciplines, drawing oncollaborations with the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. This exhibition showcases the candidates’ final research and creative projects.
The MFA Design 2016 Exhibition features work created by Talien Ghane, Yiting Hao and Patrice Soehnlein.
