On the edge of everywhere
The Town of Yarmouth positions itself “on the edge of everywhere”, at the south-western tip of Nova Scotia. Yarmouth asked Form:Media to unify wayfinding and signage for the entire town, integrating their newly implemented brand with signs for visitors and residents, including: directional signs, urban trail signs, information kiosks, signs to help guests self-guide around the historic houses district, and banners to make the streetscape more colourful.
In an effort to reduce sign clutter, not only did the program include the implementation of a new system, but also included a 'designing' campaign to remove outdated and redundant signs. Thirteen sign types were located at over 200 positions in the town and were installed the Summer and Fall of 2016.
