Connected wayfinding formed a pillar of Destination Cleveland’s multi-million dollar investment to transform the city. 

The Seamless Cleveland Master-plan was designed to create a positive welcome, connect parts of the city and tap into Cleveland’s rejuvenated appeal and brand.

A connected information strategy was followed by prototypes, testing and systemisation. Implementation included a street sign system, transit integration, airport connections and an online mapping tool; all devised to deliver seamless journeys.

Cleveland has now significantly changed perceptions, connectivity and visitor numbers.
