EATON

Eaton Center

signage & environmental graphics

Eaton creates diversified power management solutions that makes electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical power operate more efficiently and safely, sustainably. The corporation’s Eaton Center, designed by Pickard Chilton, is a contemporary and evocative manifestation of this mission. Nestled on the crest of a 53-acre site, the state-of-the-art complex is a commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees featuring daylight-filled work environments, wooded trails, and a health and fitness center. The signage and graphics program, completed while Christopher was employed at Alexander Design Associates, was created in close collaboration with the client, and reinforces this aspect of Eaton’s unique business philosophy and sustainability leadership.

EMPIRE STATE BUILDING

Lobby Restoration

custom font & signage

The Empire State Building, designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmon and completed in 1931, is arguably New York’s most iconic landmark. Beyer Blinder Belle was commissioned to lead a specialized team in restoring the lobby to its original granduer. Addressing signage needs carried some challenges: the desire to preserve the past, the need to accomodate a modern, multi-national audience, and longterm sustainability. The result was a signage program that fit seemlessly throughout the lobby, street entrances, corridors, elevator bank areas, retail spaces and public floors.
