Zak - Grooming For Men
After successfully releasing a range of men’s hair care products, Zak launched their first concept salon.
Referencing the tag system used in the packaging to differentiate the hair care range, the exterior, interior and a wall feature signage was created to build upon this unique identity.
The vertical exterior sign continues on the underside of the entry as a 3 dimensional, brushed stainless steel typography feature that leads you into the building foyer.
The interior signage, featuring brushed aluminium fixed to orange Perspex, was designed to hang from bulkheads and wrap around corners to compliment the building structure whilst still maintaining clear a wayfinding system.
As the Centre for Performing Arts was constructed with major funds coming from donors, recognition of this was incorporated into the signage system through room naming and a feature donor board in the foyer.
Signage for the new Seymour College Centre for Performing Arts was designed specifically to work in harmony with the building architecture.
