Sydney Local Health District Year in Review 2013

For the last couple of years I’ve done the Sydney Local Health District’s (SLHD) Year in Review documents.

Royal Prince Alfred Hospital 130 years

Finding a way at RPA

Hospitals are difficult places to navigate. I helped make Royal Prince Alfred Hospital a little easier to find your way in 2012, when I was commissioned by the Sydney Local Health District to design new signage for the hospital campus. The signs were also needed to help differentiate the hospital from the new Chris O’Brien Lifehouse…
