Newport Restoration Foundation Wayfinding

The Newport Restoration (NRF) promotes and invests in the architectural heritage of the Newport, RI community, the traditional building trades, and Doris Duke’s fine and decorative art collections. Visitors can explore the home of Doris Duke, Rough Point, a mansion and museum with an extensive collection of fine and decorative arts and a sprawling historic landscape with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can also explore Whitehorne House Museum, dedicated to the artistry, history and culture of 18th-century Newport furniture.

CC:S developed a visitor’s guide and map, a system of wayfinding signage and interpretive signs to help guide visitors and enhance their experience at both museums. The design of the exterior and interior signage was created to blend seamlessly with the architecture and landscape of both locations while staying easy to read and on-brand. Working closely with our fabricator, CC:S supervised the production and installation in order to deliver the highest quality results.

What We Delivered

  • Wayfinding
  • Signage
  • Print Collateral
  • Installation

It has been great to work with the whole team at CC:S—they are organized, really responsive and professional, and they have creative solutions to our design challenges. We like that we have a personal relationship with them as well—which is a nice contrast to working with large corporate firms.
