Yamari Ochre Signs had been engaged by Defence for a number of projects including a Safe Base Project in April 2019, and more recently engaged for the Wayfinding Project which commenced in April 2020.
Wayfinding is the system of providing users with the means of finding their destination on a Defence site in an effective and efficient manner. The customer experience when visiting an unfamiliar Defence site, was seen as an area of opportunity that by working with the customer, could provide many benefits to Defence. This project focused on providing visitors who are visiting unfamiliar Defence sites, with the information they require to effectively plan their journey, as well as the tools such as maps and signage they need on the ground to successfully reach their destination.
As part of this project, Yamari Ochre produced over 180 custom signs for 34 Defence bases. The Wayfinding signs at base entrances and on-base directional signs provide visitors with points of interest such as accommodation, messes, gyms, administrative services and other facilities. Signage was produced to ensure its ability to withstand the exterior environment without fading for a long period of time, but also provides a cost effective solution to update sign information if necessary.
