What is a wayfinding?
Wayfinding is the designed signage and navigation system that guides people around an unfamiliar built environment, while at the same time enhancing their experience and understanding of that space.
What is a wayfinding strategy?
Wayfinding design principles are based on anticipated human behaviour within a built environment. A wayfinding strategy considers all the audiences; their different needs and the customer journey; where printed signage should be situated; whether natural landmarks can be used instead of signage; lighting; clear messaging; entry and exit points; and disabled access.
What makes a good wayfinding system?
Simplicity and intuition are key to good wayfinding design, as well as clear and consistent visual communications.
Why is it important to promote wayfinding?
Wayfinding design systems are essential for navigating public spaces and help to promote a sense of well-being, particularly in high-stress environments that may be difficult to navigate.
