Signage Contest – Heritage District Closed

Signs are different types of visual graphics created to display information to the public on streets and buildings. A group of signs, termed signage, can be expressed in the form of advertisement (billboards/ hoardings), street name signs, directional (wayfinding) signs, or identification/ place-marker signs. The design for Bhubaneswar Heritage District’s signage should reflect a commitment to design excellence and the area’s rich heritage tradition.

BMC invites you to participate in a design contest juried by experts in transportation, graphic design and architecture, to develop an attractive and unique signage design for the Heritage District of Bhubaneswar. This is your opportunity to re-imagine how we communicate the identity of our city and historic areas to residents and visitors.
