Pedestrian Wayfinding System

Mackinaw City, MI

A gateway to the Upper Peninsula and one of two port cities for the popular tourist destination Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City was seen by many as a pass-through city on their way to their final destination. With a variety of amenities and shops in the downtown area, Mackinaw City wanted to encourage visitors to spend time exploring the area before continuing on their travels.

Corbin Design was brought on to develop pedestrian kiosks to highlight what the 3-block area of the downtown has to offer. Stone bases complemented the aesthetic of surrounding buildings and the signs were all custom designed with inspiration from The Mighty Mac. Corbin also developed the map artwork and merchant directory for the kiosks. While this system was smaller in scale, these eye-catching kiosks are successfully encouraging more Mackinaw City exploration.
