Where am I? What can I do here? Where can I go from here? Consciously or not, we ask questions like these every day as we navigate the places and spaces of our lives. Whether in museums, hospitals, airports, shopping centres or streets, we depend on systems of visual, audible, and tactile cues to lead the way and keep us safe. A decade ago, the professional practice of wayfinding design simply involved devising sign systems. Today, the field is much broader and continues to expand to address technological developments and cultural changes. Also, a cross-disciplinary familiarity with graphic, architectural, landscape, interior, industrial, and information design has become an essential requirement of 21st century wayfinding design. Designer David Gibson draws on more than thirty years of experience collaborating with architects, planners, developers, managers, and civic leaders to offer an insider's view of this rapidly evolving discipline. A great resource.
