Hyatt Waikiki signage

Complete signage package for the Hyatt Waikiki resort. Working within the stringent signage regulations of the Waikiki district of Honolulu, we created a complete signage package for the resort. Regulations require that all signs include a Hawai‘ian motif, such as palm leaves. We took a traditional Hawai‘ian quilt pattern, simplified it, and then scattered it across the bulkheads of the building, incorporating the motif without resorting to cliché.

We worked with a local signage firm to develop extensive signage documentation to be submitted to the district signage committee.
