Graphic Design Alum Helped Transform D.C.‘s National Mall

Woodbury University graphic design alum Kris Helmick is a part of the environmental graphic design team from Hunt Design in Pasadena that won a 2012 Global Design Award for the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Hunt Design was charged with creating a system that would be permanent and reflective of the stature of the National Mall, but not intrusive or distracting from the monuments themselves. The all-new wayfinding signage program for the site is comprised of more than 500 signs and directory maps. Hunt Design created a respectful and organized program that welcomes visitors and directs them to more than 50 museums, monuments, and memorials within America’s most cherished place of remembrance and celebration. The 400-acre site serves more than 25 million visitors annually. Check it out by clicking HERE.
