Water water everywhere…

After a year-long design process, the exterior signage for the Seymour-Capilano Water Filtration Plant (SCFP) has been installed!

Working in partnership with Bliss Creative, Bufo Inc. and Artcraft Graphics, The Sum has been working with Metro Vancouver to develop and design interpretive graphics for its world-class water filtration plant. The objective: design beautiful graphics that complement the natural environment and educate the public about the plant and its sustainability goals (LEED Silver).

The creative direction is a refreshing change from traditional approaches to park signage, and old water pipes were reused and retrofitted to create new graphic structures; visitors can even walk through a massive pipe as they enter the trail.

We are currently working on interior signage for the plant and look forward to posting an update soon!
