The Shoppes at Grand Prairie, Peoria, IL
(Cullinan Properties/CW Development/Pollard Group Ltd.)
GYDesign developed and implemented an extensive exterior Environmental Graphics program for this major lifestyle center located in northwest Peoria, IL.

Work consisted of the three dimensional realization of a project logotype that recalled the grasses and flora of the open prairie. The use of natural stone bases and applied metal wire sculptures resulted in a design vocabulary that enhanced and reinforced the center's pristine prairie environment. Massive stone slabs were used for both horizontal monuments and vertical markers at primary vehicular entry points. Directional graphics guided motorists in, around and back out of the development.

Interior "Courtyard" graphics consisted of entry portals that welcomed pedestrians and spanned the cobblestone walkways at various entry points. Colorful banners applied to street lamps, directories, directional signposts and special architectural graphics contributed to the ambiance of a small town retail streetscape.
