Spokane Public Library

Designed by Integrus Architecture, the three-story downtown Central Library serves as the hub of the Spokane Public Library system. Inside the main entry, patrons are greeted with a quote from former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Francis Dove.

Frosted vinyl graphics not only identify main-level public spaces, but also offer privacy. Secondary signage marks other key areas throughout the building, including a 300-person event hall on the third floor.

Elevator doors on each floor provide additional wayfinding.

As part of an extensive remodel by Integrus Architecture, helveticka designed a signage and wayfinding program for Shadle Park Library, one of the city’s busiest. The library’s two main entry points feature minimal signage.

Printed frosted vinyl was applied to identify main interior public-facing spaces, as well as to provide some privacy. The graphic pattern used throughout was inspired by the street map of the post-war Shadle Park neighborhood.

To help patrons navigate the library branch collections, helveticka developed a standardized signage system of categories and colors for all bookshelves – mobile and stationary.

Because information desks serve as the hub for the entire building – especially for visitors – identifying them is critical to the daily activities of the library.

The Podium, designed by Integrus Architecture, is a 4,000-seat multisport venue sited near Spokane’s downtown core and adjacent to Riverfront Park – a location that meant directional messaging for foot traffic was just as important as that for automobiles.

Over a main concourse longer than a football field, signage directs visitors to the field house and concessions.

As part of the building’s brand identity, wayfinding and ADA signage colors, as well as typography, provide continuity from one sign to the next.

Spokane Public Library and Spokane Public Schools

helveticka partnered with Integrus Architecture on Spokane Public Library’s “Imagine the Library of the Future” project, one component of which was the new Hive – a library without books.

Spokane Public Library

The architectural program called for a large street presence along a busy avenue; the solution was to create an unambiguous identity for the building.

The 12-foot-tall pan-channel letters are internally lit with LEDs.

Taking cues from the surrounding post-war commercial neighborhood, a two-sided neon sign signals the building’s north entry point.

The Hive’s hexagon-and-neon theme continues on the south side of the building near the primary entrance.

helveticka designed the pavilion’s 27' x 8' LED-lit and powder-coated aluminum sign; long-time collaborator Hydrafab Northwest built and installed it.

Convention Center

Spokane Public Facilities District

The signage and wayfinding system for Spokane’s $89 million Convention Center expansion required more than 600 signs to help visitors find their way around the campus.

Signage for sponsored exhibit halls is wrapped around existing concrete columns.

Visitors are oriented at the promenade that joins the original convention center with the recent addition.
