Wayfinding and Playfinding

Gallery One, Cleveland Museum of Art

SEGD member Jennifer Davis of Planar had an opportunity to spend some time with Leslie Wolke of Leslie Wolke Consulting in Austin, Texas and New York City.  Leslie is the co-founder of SEGD’s XLab annual conference and is an independent consultant specializing in wayfinding technologies.  Her clients include the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, New York University Langone Medical Center, and MD Anderson Cancer Center. Jennifer asked her questions about her passionate work in wayfinding and a new trend that Leslie has identified called “playfinding.”
