WW Grainger Headquarters

With 800,000 square feet of space spread across two buildings and 60 acres of land, W.W. Grainger needed a highly functional wayfinding system for its employees. To help people comprehend their paths among the enormous floorplates, we connected all wayfinding to an elaborate grid system that numbered all rooms and workstations. And to make the sheer volume of various signage needs feel connected, all elements were influenced by the granite fin details of the building’s exterior.
