Designed as a replacement for the current information placemats for the Polynesian Resort, the new placemats are feature several enhancements over the original design.
THEORY of DESIGN
The Front or “Map” Side of the new placemat was created with the following objectives and features…
1. Feature Larger /Easier to Read Room Numbers and Buildings
2. Create Design that would be Compatible with both color and black and white printing
3. Include Quick Reference to Most Used Numbers and Information
To that end, the buildings were made 125% bigger and the room numbers are over 200% larger than the previous version. The connecting rooms are now represented with a dotted red line to insure that the information translates for both B&W and color printing. The Quick Reference numbers were chosen to reflect those numbers that are use most frequently with a slant toward Polynesian specific information.
From time to time, the front of this placemat will be seen and used for demonstrational purposes for our guests. To that end, the front rigidly follows the design and color choices of the guest-facing Polynesian Resort.
The new placemats were designed entirely in Illustrator and therefore the ending result is a vector graphic and able to be enlarged for a variety of applications.
ALL NUMBERS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY!
