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.”

Design Disciplines Collide at SEGD's Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop

SEGD Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop

August 21-22 in Washington, D.C.

Today, exhibition design is a convergent discipline that borrows elements from retail store design, interpretive wayfinding, storytelling, media, and interaction design. The creatives who develop immersive, compelling exhibition experiences are just as diverse, hailing from the experience design world as well as web development, technology, science, typography, and brand design.

Nature Lab Exhibit

Merit Award 2014
Nature Lab Exhibit

The Nature Lab is a 6,500-square-foot, hands-on gallery showcasing live animals, media interactives, scientist demonstrations, and more than 200 specimens for visitors to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Los Angeles is located inside a biodiversity hotspot, and the evidence is everywhere—if we know how to look. The Nature Lab is the place where visitors can “put on their nature eyes” and learn to see what they’ve never seen before about wildlife in Los Angeles.
