Wayfinding for the Visually Impaired

Visually Impaired Research, RCA

The Sound of North

A Royal College of Art researcher harnesses digital technology to provide wayfinding solutions for the visually impaired.

New technologies such as RFID tags, Quick Response codes, and Wi-fi routers are dramatically altering wayfinding solutions for the sighted, but digital wayfinding tools for the visually impaired have been slower to develop.

David Sweeney, a research associate with London’s Royal College of Art, is changing all that.

Poblocki Sign Co.

Poblocki Sign Co. (West Allis, Wis.) has developed a summary of the new federal ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) for signage, which were updated in 2010 and are scheduled to go into effect nationally in 2012. States may adopt these new requirements early and some may require more restrictive standards.
The summary was created for professionals who design, specify, or manage a signage program. It can be downloaded from Poblocki’s Facebook page.

You design. I detail.

You get to do what you like to do
and I, with you, get to do what I like to do.
You get to design, I get to detail.

And in the era of mission statements,
mine (in eight words!) is this:

Preserving and honoring your design
through articulate documentation.

The purpose of my work is for you to have the results you seek.

This translates to the detailing and documentation/ packaging of your work for fabrication/ installation that will free you to focus on doing what you enjoy doing - design.

Really.
