Emergency Contact Point

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

As an initiative to further augment Student safety, emergency contact points were strategically placed around the Western Sydney University campuses. These would enable anyone in a vulnerable situation to contact Campus Safety & Security for immediate help… But what form would this take? These three design directions are based on iconography of “Help”: an exclamation mark; the letter Y (the international symbol for “Yes I need help”); and the raised hand for “attention”. The design direction ultimately implemented was that of the exclamation mark!
