This proposal for two waiting rooms for Children's Health was done in collaboration with other Skyline Art Services team members. The design idea was for departmental signage for two large existing accent walls in patient waiting areas.
The existing wall colors were integrated into the design at the client's request including a challenging dark red pediatric Radiology wall. The overall goal was a fun, non-threatening presentation. This necessitated the use of neutral colors and a limited palette. From this, I created the idea of a radio wave pattern flowing through fun animal shapes, demonstrating visually the medical imaging role of the department. Sports medicine required a design to fit the long wall, emulating the movement of sports.
The client was extremely happy with the design even though they had given very little guidance to the art consultant as to design specifics.
These designs were created with the intention of printing on Acrovyn panels.This project is awaiting budgeted funds for installation.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
