I graduated college a few months ago. And, in the process of looking for a job, I kept in the back of my head my love for art history. So, working in some capacity at a museum piqued my interest, leading me to the mysterious field of work that is experiential graphic design.
The Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 177: Enhancing Airport Wayfinding for Aging Travelers and Persons with Disabilities provides guidance to assist aging travelers and persons with disabilities to travel independently within airports using pedestrian wayfinding systems. The guidebook addresses travel by people with cognitive, sensory, and other mobility challenges. (from the Transportation Research Board website, www.trb.org)
As part of its mission to develop near-term, practical solutions to problems faced by airport operators, Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) officials selected GS&P to develop a guidebook to help airport operators improve pedestrian wayfinding systems so passengers with disabilities and aging travelers can more easily travel independently through airports.

Wayfinding for transportation environments calls on all the fundamentals of the discipline, with a very crucial addition: the element of time. To create a truly comprehensive, highly functioning wayfinding system, Jim Harding, Gresham Smith and Partners, says you need to consider the three ways airport users will receive the information. He’ll focus on the Three V’s of Communication for Transportation Environments at SEGD’s 2016 Wayfinding Event April 14-15in Miami. You’ll want to be there!
Thank You. These may be the two most powerful words in any language.
For hospitals, cultural institutions, and other non-profits that rely on generous donors to help build that new research facility or contemporary art wing, saying “thank you” graciously is vital. Effective donor recognition programs say it eloquently, and forever.
