Ohio University Student Union Food Court

Ohio University Student Union Food Court

When construction got underway for Ohio University's new Student Union, WTW Architects asked Eyethink to name and create signage for the restaurants that made up the food court on the building's first floor.

To create a feeling of unity in the space, the names of the food stations were all inspired by the university's history and traditions. As opposed to having multiple competing logotypes, a consistent visual approach was adopted using color and iconic visuals to mark each station.

A continuous graphic applied to a soffit that winds through the space above each service point creates a 125-foot band of blended color that complements the scheme of the interior fixtures. White pin-mounted letters display the names of each station.
