Construction Fence

As the graphic designers of a prominent construction fence (the Boston Harbor Island Pavilion in Downtown Boston), we are interested in other solutions for this fairly ubiquitous design problem. The fence in front of the Renzo Piano-altered Fogg Museum at Harvard is particularly straightforward and elegant because of the black & white palette and the use of swarms of arrows to redirect visitors to the still-open Sackler Museum across Broadway.  Only a single decisive person – certainly not a leaderless client committee – would have agreed to a graphic solution that didn’t include a) eye-catching color!, b) diverse and engaged people!, and c) photos of compelling works of art!
