Functional plan and design of the signage system for Sant Joan de Déu children’s hospital in Barcelona, in accordance with the graphic language that we had already defined in the environmental design project for the centre. The hospital complex consists of several interconnected buildings. This distribution is simplified by a classification in sectors, floors and areas. The strategy becomes visible in both the graphic and industrial design of the many indoor and outdoor signs, the bespoke family of pictograms and a user’s guide.
