Signage

¬†One of the first things someone may notice about GW Hospital, especially if one is searching for the building intentionally, would be its signage. The building itself is not that extraordinary: it has a simplistic brown stone and glass facade, so it blends in relatively well with the surrounding buildings (pictures in other posts). So what really helps set the hospital apart would be the signs letting people know where they are. The two signs that stood out the most would be the main “The George Washington University Hospital UHS Universal Health” sign in black, and the ER Hospital Entrance location signage. However it’s interesting to note that even these signs are relatively simplistic in design. GW Hospital either purposefully wanted to be discrete in their design, or they may figure that those who need to know of the hospital’s location, will know without any dramatic notifications.
