Foundation for the Carolinas

Founded in 1958, Foundation for the Carolinas is one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the United States, connecting and coordinating charitable giving between individuals, companies and nonprofits throughout the region. For FFTC's move into their new headquarters in Uptown Charlotte, MODE was asked to design a complete signage and wayfinding system for the building, including several pieces of digital signage and interactive touchscreen kiosks. A minimal type-driven approach was taken, with a variety of rich materials, finishes, and dimensionality lending detail and visual interest. The resulting system strikes an aesthetic balance between contemporary and timelessly classic that is at home in the restored historic Montaldo's building, and helps FFTC's headquarters convey an air of warm sophistication.
