Mayflower Wayfinding signage

Mayflower is a not-for-profit retirement and care community located in Brighton, Victoria undergoing substantial expansion. Over a 5 year timeframe Envelope developed a highly legible and visually appealing wayfinding system.


Detailed research on the Mayflower voyage and arrival provides the basis for the visual narrative used across the wayfinding system.

Existing brand identity guidelines including typeface and colours inform the design of an integrated system of sign types for specific locations throughout the facility.

Particular attention is given to legibility for elderly residents. Concepts are tested and used to develop detailed cost estimates for fabrication and installation.

Executed in three stages, Envelope’s scope includes design, production management and installation scheduling and delivery. Working closely with our longterm collaborators Graffix, each stage is delivered on time and on budget.

We've also developed a wayfinding system for Alfred Hospital and a global signage program for OZ Minerals.
