What is Wayfinding?
The main function of wayfinding signage is to inform & safely guide people though a possibly unfamiliar environment. First, a comprehensive plan is created to familiarize people in the physical space and provide direction & assistance to get people to designated points within the environment.
Messages conveyed on interior and exterior wayfinding signage minimize a person’s natural confusion when navigating a new and unfamiliar facility. The main component of wayfinding design is signage. Wayfinding design and sign systems work in unison to create a safe, efficient and comfortable environment for visitors. Clear, legible, and detailed messages must be placed strategically in the correct location and visible to all – regardless of language or physical ability.
Remaining current with the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and local accessibility regulations is vital to the development and implementation of a successful and compliant wayfinding sign system. Our Creative teams of experienced sign consultants follow any changes and provide ADAAG-related consulting to clients.
