Sigma-Aldrich Signage Design
St. Louis, Missouri
An initiative to elevate the working environment at Sigma-Aldrich brought Christner in to create a campus and greenspace development plan addressing image, security, parking, recreation and long-term development and maintenance. The plan addresses the arrival sequence and corporate image through uniform, high-impact signage; connecting paths, stairs and walls; redesigned building entries; and a significant outdoor lighting program. As a result, various facilities are linked together through clearly defined pedestrian paths; naturalized, low-maintenance greenspace significantly reduces paved areas and controls drainage; and the entire facility becomes a cohesive campus with a prominent brand identity. Further study of the corporate signage standards and brand logo resulted in signage guidelines for the company internationally.
