Wayfinding Intro

 

Wayfinding systems have the combined impact of architecture, landscaping, interior design, lighting, art, signs, people, printed

and digital information. Used together as a system these

components can communicate information effectively,

helping people make good decisions about how to get to and

from their destination. A good wayfinding system minimizes the

amount of time, attention and energy people need to spend finding

their way, or helping others find their way.

 

A good wayfinding system should make movement through a

building or campus highly intuitive. Good wayfinding systems

do not rely on signs alone. A broad approach will reduce frustration, stress and unpleasant sensation of being lost.
