New signage for Truro

New signage for Truro

This year we’ve had the exciting job of designing a full signage scheme for Truro in collaboration with Falmouth-based 20/20 Projects, funded by Truro BID. With new welcome and information signs at key access areas and wayfinding signage around the city centre, the scheme aims to orientate visitors but also encourage them to wander and explore the opes and markets.

The sophisticated design includes the city map that Wolf Rock created in 2016 and many signs will include heritage stories and historical images, complemented by flashes of copper to echo Truro’s past as a Stannary town for trade in tin and copper.

The first phase was installed by 20/20 back in June, replacing the existing (well-worn) map panels around the city.

“The new signs have already been received with many compliments,’ says Alun Jones, Truro BID Manager. “I have had the pleasure of speaking with many visitors and they have all commented on the clarity of the information and how well the new design complements the existing street furniture of the city.”

Now over 30 new monoliths and fingerposts have gone to the planning permission stage, ready for the second phase of installation later in the year.
