In 2014, the Center for Civil and Human Rights opened in Atlanta as a place for education, connection, collaboration and action.

Wayfinding, be it traditional or digital, is so 2010. We get it. Show us how to get from point A to point B via mobile device in literally five text messages. Tell me where the bathrooms are and yes, perhaps I may even like to send those directions to my mobile as well – although our recent work in this space actually tells us something quite different. Initially, digital wayfinding was a one-to-one interactive experience. Users searched a destination and were provided directions to get there.
