A stadium in Gabon

Gabon is a country in eastern Africa below the Gulf of Guinea. Across the African continent there is a great passion for football and in its capital Libreville there was a stadium that required modern rehabilitation. The Spanish company Eurofinsa has led this work by converting the new Omnisport Omar Bongo Stadium into one of the most modern sports facilities in the country, which was built in honour of President Omar Bongo who governed Gabon from 1967 to 2009. This football stadium can host to 40,000 fans.

The project of identification and signalling of the stadium was entrusted to Signes. The Concept Design proposal is based on the green, yellow and blue colours of the Gabonese flag. From this chromatic premise the different supports have been designed to identify the stadium, locate the sectors that were ordered following the cardinal points N, S, E and W to locate the accesses since the circular architecture can confuse users. From the access, the doors, corridors and seats were signalled. The signalling also solves the entry of vehicles and merchandise in parallel.

The project included the study of needs, graphic and industrial design of the different elements; totem, directional, positional, informative messages of recommendations or prohibitions, lockers, services and cafeterias. All signage was done in French language.
