LAX SIGNAGE + WAYFINDING

lax-signage.jpg

Los Angeles International Airport, also known as LAX, is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. With this impressive statistic comes a complex task to direct incoming and outgoing pedestrians, family members, ride share operators, and the near 45,000 employees of the airport to their final destinations.

While at Selbert Perkins I was working on various aspects of the Airport’s signage and wayfinding system for the construction of the new APM (Automatic People Mover) Airtrain and the update of the existing signage guidelines. Over the course of my internship I was highly involved in updating and creating:

  • Detail Drawings - front, sides and back elevation drawings of how a sign is to be built including colors, materials, and measurements.

  • Message Schedules - corresponds each specific message with each specific sign type and location.

  • Circulation Diagrams - floor plan showing pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow and message drawings in their corresponding locations to understand the most effective information needed at a specific location.

As well as:

  • Complying with ADA regulations

  • Demonstrating attention to detail

  • Maintaining a cohesive brand identity through Color, Typography, Pictograms and Materials.
