As a team, we worked with the Limestone District School Board (LDSB) to create a high-impact commemorative wall design for Kingston Secondary School (KSS), formed by merging KCVI and QECVI. LDSB wanted to honour the historical tapestries of both schools while infusing the vibrant spirit of today’s youth.
The creation of the nicknamed “Legacy Wall” required several stages of planning, consultation, and creative execution.
Two major tasks were involved: firstly, the reconciliation, organization, and writing of all the panel content. Secondly, the complicated print production planning was crucial. This exhibit incorporated a wall decal sticker, and acrylic printed panels layered with PVC blocks, and was finished off with custom cut 1″ lettering.
The final custom creation, a collaborative effort involving our entire team, spans an impressive 35′ x 8.3′. It now stands as a captivating visual exhibit, showcasing the independent accomplishments and stories of each school throughout the years while weaving them together to embrace their merge into Kingston Secondary School.
This design not only engages the viewer’s gaze but also underscores the significance of the two schools’ history, ensuring it is not overshadowed by the merger. It presents the information in an equitable manner, highlighting timeline milestones and a range of thematic subject matters. Moreover, it has been designed with accessibility in mind, making it inclusive for all audiences and following best practices in accessibility guidelines.
