Liverpool has been a much neglected city until recently. Now, with the lure of becoming a City of Culture the taps have been turned on. With its rich mix of old and new buildings and its enviable waterfront, and following the successful signing of Bristol, Wood & Wood were asked to sort out its wayfinding.
As part of Liverpool’s dramatic regeneration and transformation, a city-wide pedestrian wayfinding system is already helping to connect people with the city’s rich culture and heritage. In November 2004 I talked to members of the Sign Design Society about how privileged I feel to have been involved in this project, from its aspirational beginnings to the conclusion of this first phase.
