Anchorage Museum | Design Weekend Signage

The project

The Anchorage Museum brings the best of Alaska to the world and the best of the world to Alaska -- which is why we were especially honored to have been asked to work with them! In preparations for Anchorage Design Weekend 2017, the museum's design team envisioned making several large signs featuring Anchorage GIS data in an artistic way.  

GIS overlaying blocks of color. Anchorage specific data. Celebrate Design Weekend. 

The process

Anchorage Museum created the beautiful designs, then handed them to SML for fabrication. Wood backgrounds were used as a canvas for GIS data lines featuring lights, waterways, and topography of Anchorage. These lines were layered over blocks of painted letters spelling out the city name, then fixed to large metal tag hangers.

The outcome

Unique and geographically significant, these signs were displayed during Design Weekend, and we couldn't be more proud! Designed in Alaska. Made in Washington.
