Cut vinyl for office wall wayfinding
Have a meeting Thursday morning to discuss wayfinding in a five floor modern office building, with their designer (I work with the client and the designer fairly regularly on art installations, both are sensible and open to sugestions). Walls are a mix of painted and semi polished concrete, and proposal is for cut vinyl. Building has been up a few years, and I don’t believe walls have been repainted since. My normal goto materials are Metamark M4/M7, and from first conversations, I’m guessing this will be a 2-5 year install. I’ve only got a little baby 24″ Graphtec, but above the ground floor, the ceilings are only 10-12′. I don’t imagine any components will be taller than 550mm.
Any suggestions for better materials (I’ve got no complaints about working with M4/M7), or gotcha’s I should be thinking of? I’m assuming install outside of office hours, so temperature may be starting to dip, but not too extreme.
My side will be the normally sighted work, specialist braille etc will be separately dealt with. These are offices for staff, so not too concerned about having letters picked off.
Thoughts / suggestions would be appreciated.
