We help people to find their way, sometimes by signs.

We help people to find their way. Of course we still advise to put up signs when applicable. But more and more we change our focus to architectural and spatial planning. The more signs you see, the worse the architecture. We don't 'show' the way people have to go but encourage natural wayfinding.
