This interior branding project was developed as a way to communicate the USFS Region 6 recent brand refresh and updated mission to employees and visiting stakeholders. The agency's core values, history, partnerships, and broad scope of services within diverse Washington and Oregon forest regions are represented in a permanent exhibition across 6 floors of offices. The exhibit includes historic and contemporary photography, themed conference rooms, wall graphics, iconic illustrations, and room signage
With the offices located in a LEED Platinum building, many steps were taken to implement an equally environmentally sensitive graphics program as much as possible.
The signage was made from four species of central Oregon timber harvested by a logging industry partner as part of a forest rehabilitation and fire prevention project. The photography frames were made from reclaimed barn wood from central Oregon. Wallcoverings were made from a natural, bio-degradable material and zero-voc paint was used.
The conference room names were created to reflect the core values and each room is themed accordingly. In each room, a past project is showcased that relates to the room theme.
Role: Environmental graphic design, space programming, photography curation, vendor and production coordination.
Designed with Metropolitan Group in Portland OR.
