The Hearst Tower signage design system is a network of lit signage, glass films, and elevator orientation elements for the headquarters of the renowned publisher of Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar. The centerpiece is an array of freestanding “totems” of glass and steel that serve a double function: both to direct visitors to vertical building circulation, and to call the elevators themselves.
