ID LAB was initially engaged by Cabrini Hospital to conduct a signage audit with a view to making the site more user-friendly. The findings from the signage audit demonstrated that staff didn’t refer to the signs, there were unrelated signage systems, and there was an inconsistent approach to direction giving.

ID LAB then developed a new overarching wayfinding strategy and designed signage elements that complemented the intended look and feel of the hospital. The new strategy makes the wayfinding journey more specific and improves legibility.

ID LAB’s hardware design solution combines curved panels with high-contrast signage panels. With the addition of timber veneer details, the system steps away from a typical utilitarian hospital feel toward the intended high-end ‘hotel’ standard finish.
