The JRC Design team and Artist Joan Baron collaborated closely together for this concept. Prior to any pen to paper, we developed the four “E’s” design parameters –
Effective – Sculptural, colorful, and tactile, and have high impact on the surrounding limited color palette of downtown.
Educational – Time line to the luminaries’ lives and their impact on Arizona and the nation through a multi-level montage.
Enjoyable – Engaging with their mix of materials, colors, levels of information and detail, each elevation provides different elements to discover, touch and explore.
Efficient – Redefining the set of individual kiosks into a loop path of markers instead of singular stops, each marker includes graphics of the entire path, a brief description of each luminary and its location, and overall information about the complete Walk of Pride system.
