Mercy Corps
World Headquarters

Portland, Oregon
Placemaking, Wayfinding, Donor Recognition

A thoughtful, understated move to an historic building in central Portland allowed Mercy Corps to coalesce their culture and publicly share their compelling message of global hope and relief. Signage recognizes donors, thinks green and advances their vision of a healing world. Careful use of materials and building techniques led to a LEED® Platinum designation. We drew inspiration from these principles, using elegant, sustainable materials such as eco-resin impregnated banana fiber. Throughout, signage helps link a revitalized historical building to an impassioned, contemporary vision.
