The M80 Trail is a significant connective path network proposed to complement the $2.25 billion Ring Road Upgrade.
ASPECT Studios and Studio Binocular have delivered an identity and wayfinding strategy to be rolled-out across the entire network. Covering 38km, the trail traverses major roads, rail and waterways. The necessity for a clear and legible system of navigation was paramount to meet the challenges of an, at times, disjointed and circuitous route.
The identity laid the foundation for the creation of a signage family, furniture and shelters that are iconically ‘branded’. At the heart of the system is the use of a common colour and characteristic form to clearly sign and signify the route for users.
