The campus includes the University of Colorado health professional schools, multiple centers and institutes and two nationally ranked hospitals, UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, which treat nearly 2 million patients each year. All interconnected, these organizations collaboratively improve the quality of patient care they deliver, research they conduct, and health professionals they train.

ArtHouse completed an audit of all existing signage on the campus and redesigned the existing wayfinding system. The goal was to enhance a sense of place by unifying the brand messaging and aesthetic image on the campus, and to develop a new wayfinding system that made it easier for visitors and staff to navigate the campus. Using a macro to micro approach to the wayfinding, the signage was updated to create a seamless and cohesive visitor experience that is welcoming and intuitive.
