Creating a Sense of Place

Signage and wayfinding systems guide people through a physical environment and enhance their understanding and experience of the space. Tangram has worked on a variety of signage and wayfinding projects ranging in size and complexity for governmental, institutional, transportation, recreational, and commercial clients. For each of our clients we aim to create an aesthetic, functional, and maintainable wayfinding signage system that promotes their brand, highlights important destinations, improves overall circulation, creates a sense of place and an engaging user experience.

Tangram has an eclectic mix of creative designers, wayfinding strategists, technical specification experts, and project managers that deliver high-quality and effective design solutions.

Tangram has demonstrated their full understanding of the historic background and the social implications associated with the project. The team has been very sensitive and attentive to the cultural attributes that are unique to the project. Their design work is very creative and impressive, and Tangram has responded well to the City's needs.

Laramie County Community College

Tangram has proven to be very knowledgeable, informative, and cognizant of the signage industry and practices. They provided excellent guidance on a number of signage factors, such as; types of materials, colors, visibility issues, ease of maintenance, fabrication and installation. Tangram is an excellent design firm; I highly recommend them for any project involving the planning and design of wayfinding signage systems.

— Tim Macnamara, Physical Plant Director

City of Bethlehem

The community outreach was extensive for our project. Tangram has been very responsive to the individual requests made by several stakeholders in the community and the final design was well received by the community. It is clear that Tangram has completed many quality projects of similar or larger scope than ours and brought a significant amount of experience and talent to the table.
