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!
