ID Signsystems and Canadian Designer Team Up on RIT Hall of Fame
Toronto-based design firm, Entro, lived up to their stellar reputation in envisioning the design for a comprehensive signage program for the Gene Polisseni Center, the new home of the Rochester Institute of Technology hockey teams. The visually-stunning display, a prominent focal point within the state-of-the-art facility on RIT’s Henrietta campus, incorporates the tiger brand in inventive fashion.
The details of the multi-part display are fascinating to behold. Abstracted and sliced into shifting vertical strips, the graphic elements of the display’s centerpiece create the illusion of movement in delightful, surprising ways. RIT’s Sports Hall of Fame honors inductees in a continuous origami-style recognition wall that alternates between tiger stripes and the inductee panels. The result is a dynamic faux-lenticular effect that shifts depending on viewing perspective.
