VIRGINIA BEACH CONVENTION CENTER

Virginia Beach, VA | CVEDesign

Project

Grand spatial gestures with subtle references to nautical forms—the architecture for this elegant civic landmark was our point of departure. Our challenge was to guide visitors effortlessly from the public roadways and parking lot to the center’s vast lateral interiors, and to everything that lay within. We developed a hierarchical sign nomenclature for this comprehensive system.

Our graphics are simple and clear, easily read even at a distance. Our sculptural, white sail-like forms and shapes reinforce the nautical influence, with a subtle blue background glow highlighting the overlapping planes of the interior signs.
