Perkins School for the Blind

Watertown, MA

Wayfinding, Branding, Donor Recognition, Accessibility Design

For the beautiful and historic Perkins campus (founded 1829), Gamble Design merged traditional design elements with a contemporary sign armature patterned on existing fence and other period architectural details. Graphics were rendered in bold colors with maximum contrast to optimize low vision readability. Gamble Design has built upon this initial wayfinding system by developing new exterior and interior sign graphics for important architectural additions such as the new Lower School (2011) and the innovative Grousbeck Center for Students & Technology (2012).
