New signs to find the way


New Sydney Living Museums branded wayfinding signage is being rolled out to several of our museums and houses.

The signage has been under development since the new brand was unveiled in April 2013.

Developing this new signage has also given us a chance to review and make adjustments to how we move people around our properties.

The new signage was designed by consultant firm Minale Tattersfield and is fabricated out of aluminium with a distinctive ‘kink’ form. It took several meetings with staff and consultants to resolve our signage needs.

Property identification signage featuring the same kink design has also been developed and will shortly be tendered for fabrication and installation.
