Since Wayzata was founded over 150 years ago, residents and visitors have spoken about the beauty of its setting. Located at the northeast tip of Lake Minnetonka, the community nestles around scenic Wayzata Bay and looks out over the long expanse of historic Lake Minnetonka, with its sparkling blue waters, wooded and meandering shoreline, islands and many secluded bays.
Wayzata has provided this area with a retail center that features dozens of high-quality specialty shops and many other fine businesses located along the lakefront in a half-dozen shopping centers and elsewhere in the city. This retail hub remains strong, and Wayzata has recently added another facet to it’s character – that of an area financial and office center.
Visual Communications provided a Signage Master Plan for downtown directional, parking and Informational signage. The simplistic design compliments the old world charm of the existing light standards while providing flexibility for changes and new growth.
