A campus-wide external wayfinding system was designed to fit into the historic campus originally planned by Frederick Law Olmsted. Painted black steel posts with ball finials support and unified all signage elements. Street, directional, building identity, and campus map signs lead newcomers through the rolling site.

The signage was part of Denison’s $60-million Campus Common project that included the Burton D. Morgan Center, Samson Talbot Hall for Life Sciences, and an underground parking facility for nearly 400 vehicles. The project spanned interior, parking information, and donor signage.
