What is Wayfinding Signage
and How do I use it?

Navigation from place to place is an integral part of everyday life. Where are you? Where are you going? People use their knowledge and previous experience to find their way. What did you see, whey did you see it and what did you do with the information.

When creating a visually effective wayfinding system we need to take all of the research and information available to us into account. Research is always our first step. Not only what will look the best but what will be the most effective way to direct people throughout each building or space.

Everything is taking into deep consideration during the initial planning stages including color, contrast, font, font size and of course placement. Only after all of this has been carefully development do we start looking at design elements.
