JWU Center for Physician Assistant Studies Signage and Supergraphics

DBVW Architects was hired to design signage and supergraphics for this 18,000 square foot Physician Assistant (PA) Program at Johnson and Wales University (JWU). DBVW’s lead graphic designer worked with architectural and interior design staff to choose fonts, colors and graphics that would complement and enhance the building’s design. The team also collaborated with JWU’s Director of PA Studies, Office of Facilities Management and Communications Department to ensure that the signage and graphics were informed by the PA program’s history and mission and that the graphics reflect the University’s standards. A timeline that outlines the history of the profession, a mission statement wall and an ethics wall all serve as inspiring reminders of why the students who come to this building are choosing to pursue the Physician Assistant Profession.
