Interior and exterior signage at Morningstar's global headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
  • In 2008 Morningstar relocated its global headquarters to 22 West Washington Street in downtown Chicago. The scope of work included both interior and exterior achitectural and directional graphics, signage standards, and electronic media displays spanning all ten floors. Taking inspiration from the company's name, a halftone pattern was developed as an abstract representation of the transition from dark to light at sunrise. This concept formed the cornerstone of the visual theme expressed in graphic elements throughout the building.
