Materiality as a visual signature for Sligo

As part of the design for the Sligo town centre wayfinding scheme, our desire to use local materials has led us to incorporating Irish Blue Limestone as a core material within the signage system.

Limestone is the chief visible connector of Sligo’s past; linking the regions natural history and neolithic landscapes to the rich architectural heritage of the town.

Complementing the Limestone we are using Verdigris Copper and Bronze; familiar materials that are intrinsic to the vernacular of Sligo’s streetscapes.
