    We have received two comments via email and I wanted to include them here:
    2. B is too clinical. Like C best, good information and colours make the letters clear.
    3. After serious deliberation I have chosen C. These options conjur up Vancouver and our connection to nature which is imperitive for holistic health and healing. I feel this option would be less glaring to the soul and protrusive to the environment. Ill children and their parents, and most certainly pregnant women, are in need of a robust connection to natural surroundings in both the outdoor and indoor environment.

    Thank you to everyone for particpating. Please look for future polls on this and other topics.

    I prefer C, however I am concerned about maintenance and replacement cost.

    Option A is great for identifying spaces, but the colours not appealing. We already know, from research done by fast-food restaurants, that red and yellow (think McDonald’s)make people hyper so they don’t linger in the restaurant. They eat and get out. So many children/people feeling nauseous when they are in hospital, so those bright colours may be overwhelming. Colour-coding is an excellent idea, but I think you need to re-think the actual colours in Option A and come up with a palette that is more soothing, but still clearly identifies spaces.

    Thanks Donna for your comments–I will forward them to the wayfinding consultants and committe working on this project later today! Susan Greig
