A History of Lead­er­ship, A Future of Growth for TCS

July 6, 2016


Trin­ity College School (TCS) is a lead­ing inde­pen­dent board­ing / day school located in Port Hope, Ontario. With a history that pre-dates confed­er­a­tion, TCS has a repu­ta­tion for excel­lence and lead­er­ship. Between its senior and junior schools, rang­ing from grades 5 through 12, TCS boasts nearly 600 students. In collab­o­ra­tion with TCS, Entro devel­oped a mini­mal­ist campus wayfind­ing program & donor recog­ni­tion program that refer­ences the school’s history in a modern style.

The main lobby of the newly built Learn­ing Commons sets the tone for the wayfind­ing where the school’s mission is displayed promi­nently using elegant typog­ra­phy. In keep­ing with TCS brand colours, signage uses solid bands of grey and maroon with a layered effect for dimen­sion, over­laid with white text and graph­ics. Donor-specific signage is made unique with silver back­ground and a multi-tonal maroon metal­lic accent band that adds texture and jewelry-like shim­mer. The TCS crest is applied to subtle effect on all room signage, quietly affirm­ing the school’s history of excel­lence.

The wayfind­ing is part of a larger initia­tive of build­ing a sustain­able future for the school and contin­u­ing TCS’s mission of “Devel­op­ing habits of the heart and mind for a life of purpose and service.”
