Three key elements that define Wayfinding are –
architecture, graphics and verbal human interaction.
The key work in building navigation and orientation theory is Arthur and Passini’s 1992 publication – Wayfinding. This brought together the three key elements on which wayfinding is comprised – architecture, graphics and verbal human interaction.
When creating a signage system for an area, building or architectural structure it is essential to develop a strategic wayfinding scheme. This must always be a collaborative effort with the client. With this approach you will build up a modular wayfinding system that will adapt to the build environment and the human expectations for orientation and navigation purposes.
Allsigns have worked with a number of clients within the NHS, local and central Govt. departments,further education and the private sector to help originate, design, or improve their internal and external wayfinding systems.
