Graphic and Design Commission from NHS Ayrshire and Arran
From Will Levi Marshall
Deadline: 30 January 2015 at 17:00
We are seeking and artist/designer or illustrator to develop three bespoke graphic outputs that will mesh with the way finding and interior strategy of the project. It is expected the selected artist/designer will work closely with the existing design team, building contractor, and their suppliers, as appropriate.
Project One: Reception Desk frontage
Develop a design based on the sea and coastline around Ayrshire that will form part of the frontage for the main reception desk that welcomes everyone to the new hospital. After consultation an acrylic panel with a CNC etched design on the back face, illuminated by back or side lighting is proposed. The artist’s role will be to research and source imagery from the natural world of the Ayrshire coast and create a marine design to be cut on the panel.
Project Two: Wayfinding Iconography
To design and develop iconographic imagery which could be based on or influenced by the name of the building and/or the individual ward names that will be integrated into the signage and way finding. Alternatively it could be based on the flora and fauna of Ayrshire. In view of the architectural heritage of existing buildings on the site an Art Deco theme may further inform the design work.
Project Three: Vinyl Manifestations
Modern buildings benefit from large glazed areas. This has a dramatic and important positive effect in light levels and psychological connections to surrounding landscape. However in order for a building as complex as a hospital to function adequately different levels of visibility are required in specific locations. The requirements vary from full screening to minimal DDA compliance glazing dots. This project is to design Landscape based vinyl manifestation to screen glazing as deemed necessary. This will be rolled out across campus in targeted locations that require additional glazing to be screened.
Design budget comprises of £10,750 with additional implementation budgets
