Nobel Prize winning work?

By April 28, 2008 March 23rd, 2017 Latest News

We’ve recently been commissioned by the University of Western Australia to develop a signage package covering both interpretive and environmental signage installations at the Microbiology and Immunology building (L Block) in the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre.

This exciting project will see Axiom Design Partners develop two interpretive signage installations.

One installation will be dedicated to the Marshall Centre which was founded in 2007 to celebrate the award of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Professor Barry Marshall and Emeritus Professor Robin Warren. Dr Marshall and Dr Warren carried out ground-breaking research on Helicobacter pylori, proving that this bacterium is the cause of most stomach ulcers.

The second interpretive signage installation will be dedicated to the School of Biomedical, Biomolecular and Chemical Sciences which has a proud and distinguished history in Western Australia dating back to 1956 and the appointment of Neville Stanley as Foundation Professor of Microbiology.

We will also be developing an integrated directional signage solution that incorporates a wayfinding directory (in keeping with UWA style guides) and a faculty photo directory to be installed in the main lobby of the complex.

There are also a variety of opportunities to develop several graphic murals to various walls within the complex.

We’re working closely with the Architects for the project Hames Sharley who are coordinating the building works that are being undertaken to both upgrade the building and accommodate the signage installations prior to the facilities official opening ceremonies.
