Tokyo International Business College Building No.2

A signage plan for Tokyo International Business College Building No.2 —The design intent was to utilize the tiled space. The design of the floor numbers next to the elevator takes advantage of the layering multiple textures of the tile, configured with straight lines along the tiles, and painted on directly. The numbers blend into the tile wall, obscuring the boundaries between space and graphics. To encourage left-hand traffic on the stairs, a silhouette of shoes was fixed on the left side of the kick. The sign was aimed to induce users to instinctively walk on the left side rather than posting imperative instructions or arrows.
