Multicultural Messaging for a Campus-Wide Audience

University of Texas at Dallas Wayfinding
Richardson, Texas, USA

The University of Texas at Dallas’ wayfinding system goes far beyond standard directional signage.

Permanent floor-to-ceiling wall murals identify decision points and feature a multi-layered, artful presentation of floor numbers displayed in several languages to reflect a multicultural audience. Mounted directional signs provide a complete building directory. Two mobile kiosks with similar information are available during high-traffic times such as enrollment periods. All of these wayfinding elements use easily updated inserts.

The bold graphics and four-inch numbers above room doors enable visitors to identify rooms from a distance.

The university’s colors, orange and green, color-code the floors.

In the building’s two atrium spaces, hanging fabric mobiles honor the university’s comet mascot. The mobiles are vibrant, floating sculptures that move with the ambient airflow to form dynamic pieces of art.
