Downtown Davis

The City of Davis, home to UC Davis, was in need of directing visitors, students, and residents to a host of key destinations downtown along with critical parking lots. Seeing a teaching opportunity, GNU enlisted several students from the UC Davis Design Department to assist in thoroughly programming the 24-block downtown area. We gauged stakeholder concerns and documented traffic patterns, information requirements and potential orientation locations. The result was the City Wayfinding Strategy, which GNU designed and documented for the City.
