Exterior Building Signage
Every building needs a sign, and whether that sign serves to identify an entrance, act as wayfinding, or announce a brand’s identity, Utile’s team of architects and graphic designers work together to design building and site signage consistent with the architectural language unique to each project. Together, Utile’s exterior and interior signage services are able to create a cohesive wayfinding journey though a project for building occupants.
A marquee for the Dudley Branch of the Boston Public Library designed by Utile in 2014 was repurposed as building signage for Utile’s 2020 renovation of the newly named Roxbury Branch Library.
A vertical, wedge-shaped marquee designed for The Boston Conservatory in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood allows pedestrians and motorists to read the sign from multiple directions. The scale of the sign accompanied by its unique shape allows the sign to remain noticeable in a neighborhood with an array of large, sometimes distracting signs.
Utile designed a new monument sign for The Park School in Brookline to replace an existing sign. The new sign features the school’s new logo while incorporating bench seating that allows a school tradition of sitting on the sign for first-day-of-school photos to continue.
