Melbourne Rectangular Stadium
During his time as a Designer at Cox Architecture, Thomas’s focus was predominantly on the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium (AAMI Park) project. Thomas’s work included the design, development, and documentation of a wayfinding system for the stadium. With other 1000 individual pieces, the package was comprehensive and highly technical. Using the rounded san serif typeface ‘Apex’ the signage package captured the spirit and energy of the stadium’s unique architecture.
In addition to the signage package, Thomas also designed the seating plan. A unique pattern design was developed by individually coloring over 30,000 seats. The concept behind the design was a ‘pixelated’ gradient pattern that followed the stadium’s architectural roofline.
