Improving Wayfinding Communication Bethel Valparaiso Church deploys flexible signage solution C o u R T e S Y o f V I S u A L M A G N e T I C S Bethel Valparaiso Church in Valparaiso, Indiana needed a cost- effective solution for changing their interior wayfinding signage regularly for conferences, events and church worship. In 2013, the church was remodeling the building and wanted a flexible solution for signage for multipurpose rooms. e congregation hired Merrillville, Indiana-based Aion Solutions to help develop a more flexible solution for their wayfinding needs. Aion developed a layered magnetic receptive wayfinding system using the Visual Magnetics Graphic System that could be changed out easily by church staff. e team at Aion recommended VM-POLYmae and VM-InvisiLock mounted onto Sintra boards to make communicating to church visitors easier and more effective. For example, aer church worship has wrapped up, the "Worship Hall" layer can be removed to reveal "Conference Hall" if the church is also hosting a conference or event that day. "We have a small facility, and we use different desks and rooms for different purposes. On Sunday morning, one of our main desks is a children's check-in, on Saturdays that same desk is used for something completely different. Some- times in one day we need to switch out signage several times," says Fred Butson, Worship Director at Bethel Valparaiso. "Before having Visual Magnetics, we had nothing as far as wayfinding. We looked at all kinds of different solutions for beer communication, whether it was signage for bathrooms, coffee or services. We liked that Visual Magnetics' print me- dia was nice and clean, clear and versatile. And once we realized we could swap out signage to communicate different things, we were sold." SDG
