Last week marked the grand opening of the Health Information Center at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Part of the mission of this library is “…providing patients, family members and the community with valuable information on the latest health news and free research for specific diseases or illnesses.” Working with Heather King, interior designer, we developed and designed several complex display graphics that utilized dimensional lettering, acrylic panels and exotic woods.
These unique walls are comprised of thick acrylic panels with faux Ginkgo Biloba leaves. The result is a pleasing landscape of colorful leaves cascading to the floor.
The dimensional lettering featured in the HIC are designed to match many other letters that we’ve produced and installed elsewhere on the UTMC campus. The brushed aluminum faces give them a polished, professional look.
These elaborate and multi-layered plaques are packed with details. Multiple elements and production processes were combined to create these awards that recognize those that have exhibited exceptional dedication, character and diligence to their craft and others’s lives.
Arguably, the pièce de résistance of the room, the donor wall recognizes the many people that generously gave towards the creation of the Health Information Center. Each donor has his or her name printed directly onto a piece of exotic wood. Although the placement may appear random, there was a specific plan in place on how to layout every piece of wood on the wall.
