The city of Littleton, CO has hired Kristin Cypher, owner of C+B Design, to create new directional and gateway signs for downtown, according to the Littleton Independent.
Re-designing the downtown will make residents (and new residents) find the community even more appealing, while still keeping the traditional look of the buildings and streets. “You want to have a space that feel like it has a palette, a theme to it, said Cypher in the article.
The Littleton Courthouse cupola holds the most tradition and will encompass a lot of the design ideas, another is emphasizes the colors red and yellow – Littleton’s theme colors. Another route the city might take is featuring kinetic sculptures at the east and west gateways.
Visit the city’s opinion website, OpenLittleton.org to place some input on the design choices. One visitor wrote that “besides the historic, simple and clean look, the focal point of the signage, the cupola, is probably what most residents (the ones who have been here for a while, anyway) envision when thinking of Littleton. We need to keep as much of that historic feel as we can.”
Final proposals are set to be ready sometime in June. The plans include street-name signs, gateway art, directional and informational signs, and destination identifiers at places like Town Hall Arts Center, Littleton Station and trail entrances. Look for these are more great changes to come to the community soon.
