Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg
Orientation System Outdoor Area

Moni­teurs not only de­signed the ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem in­side, but also out­side the build­ing – from the signs for foot pas­sen­gers and cy­clists to the ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem for the car parks. The con­sis­tent ap­pli­ca­tion of a sin­gle graphic con­cept cre­ates a uni­form ap­pear­ance for the en­tire air­port site. The pic­togram fam­ily icons were ex­panded to in­clude site-spe­cific lo­ca­tions such as the vis­i­tor cen­tre and the Air­port City.

Moniteurs developed all the floor plans for the outdoor signage as well as for the terminal. The plans were implemented both in print and digital form.

Directly in front of the terminal is the so-called Airport City, with hotel, car park, office buildings and a visitor centre. The system was supplemented by elements such as backlit displays, road signs and pedestrian signs.

All of the streets were named after important people from aviation history.

A QR code attached to each signpost allows somebody with a smartphone to learn more about the person the street was named after.

The graphic concept of the terminal is carried through seamlessly to the car parks. They are all incorporated into the overall signage design.

To conform with the legal requirments for German traffic signs, coloured bars were used instead of full-surface colour.
