Covignano trails graphics and furnishings: beyond the sea there is more
A tourist signage is an opportunity to show and enhance, the architectural, environmental and economic beauties of Rimini hills, a landscape unknown to the most. Outdoor installations create an open-air museum about history, art and gastronomy.
Covignano trails graphics and furnishings: a dream to realize
The hills of Covignano, Spadarolo and Vergiano are a fundamental landmark for Rimini, both from a natural and historical point of view. Covered with woods and farmed fields, they are the most important “green lung” for the city and were the first inhabited settlement, documented by evidences of 800.000 years ago.In 2004, the municipality of Rimini promoted the enhancement of “Historical and naturalistic trails of Covignano, Spadarolo and Vergiano”, with the arrangement of furniture, signage and an adequate communication plan.
Covignano trails graphics and furnishings: our project between outdoor spaces design, communication, graphic design, historic research and construction
This public assignment concerned the design of the trail signs, the graphics for the trails logo and the vertical signs; “the trail entrance map”, “the historical and natural beauty map” and “the arrows”. For the graphics, two main colors were chosen, red and white, which, besides being the representative colors of Rimini, perfectly match the fir wood supports.
The poster, the flyers for the trail opening tour and the cardboard displays with foldable leaflets were also part of the assignment. During the conference press, followed by an excursion, the graphic project was illustrated to the tour operators, to the citizens and to the personnel of the public administration.Since summer 2006, the cardboard displays have been displayed in every hotel’s reception of Rimini coast.
