It's not every day that SEGD gets to take over the main sign to the entrance of an airport. Especially Miami International Airport, the second largest airport in the country with just over 44 million passengers last year!
Where can you discover the latest apps and digital signage technologies being used in airports? And learn how human factors research should be informing your next healthcare project? And see the latest in wayfinding/branded environments hybrids in workplaces? You’ll want to find your way to Miami April 14-15 for SEGD’s 2016 Wayfinding Event! Here’s your map.
Technology is rapidly changing the delivery systems we use to navigate the built world, but the fundamentals of wayfinding have barely changed since Kevin Lynch coined the term more than 50 years ago. Chris Calori and David Vanden-Eynden (Calori & Vanden-Eynden / Design Consultants, New York) have developed hundreds of wayfinding systems and literally wrote the book on Signage and Wayfinding Design. Keynoting SEGD’s Wayfinding event April 14-15 in Miami, they'll take a critical look at the complex present and warp-speed future of wayfinding.
Wayfinding projects for transportation, workplace, education and healthcare environments share some core similarities but also offer widely divergent challenges. At SEGD’s 2016 Wayfinding event, we’ve gathered some of the world's leading wayfinding experts to share the latest best practices, trends and insights with you.
The Federal Highway Administration’s turnaround on the use of Clearview—the typeface designed to improve highway sign legibility, especially for aging drivers—has state highway officials, Clearview designers and researchers frustrated and wondering how to push back the clock.
Signage and Wayfinding Design 2nd Edition, by Chris Calori, FSEGD, and David Vanden-Eynden, FSEGD, co-founders of Calori & Vanden-Eynden Design Consultants (New York), is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
