The City of Savannah will welcome you with true Southern hospitality, just as they have been welcoming guests since 1733. Hip and historic, robust and refined, Savannah is where you will find amazing architecture, spooky cemeteries and rich history—along with global sophistication, funky nightlife and
fabulous food. It is where history resonates into the present day, and where memories are still being made.
The City of Savannah's Department of Tourism and Film has retained MERJE for the development of a pedestrian focused wayfinding program for The National Historic Landmark District and Convention District. The Historic District encompasses one of the largest urban forests in the nation. The renowned city street plan of public squares and gardens offers a unique environment that is easily walk-able and a place where discovering the varied architecture, landscape and hidden details is all part of the journey.
MERJE's plan focuses on promoting multi-modal transportation. Visitors are directed first to parking garages and then encouraged to explore Savannah on foot with the aid of shuttle and ferry services. Along with pedestrian level directional signs, maps, and kiosks, the design utilizes Custom Icons to guide visitors to their destinations.
