Santiago, Chile, José Allard & Rodrigo Ramirez


In response to the global crises currently underway, designers from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America will address what they are seeing in their home states, and what they are doing to help people feel safe, comfortable, confident, and welcome in public places. They will discuss best practices in signage, environments, digital platforms, icon making, and communication given new paradigms and behaviors. And, they will talk about the evolving market demand for experiences in urban centers, retail environments, health care facilities, and university settings.

From Santiago Chile, Rodrigo Ramirez, director of the design school at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and fellow professor, Jose Allard, who is also a partner with Wayfinding, will be discussing their research into developing symbol systems taking cultural contexts and understanding into account.
