Alison Richings is Wayfinding Design Director of Endpoint.
For Alison Richings, wayfinding is her vocation. She has always been fascinated by human behaviour – why we make the decisions we do, how the environment impacts on that, and how we can make things better for all concerned. When you get that right, it can be hugely rewarding. No more so than in the field of Health, which is where she started in wayfinding. Alison was part of the team that researched and wrote the national NHS guidelines on wayfinding.
As partner at Applied, Richard Simón leads the urban and transport planning work for wayfinding systems in cities including London, New York, Vancouver, Glasgow, Leeds, Brighton and Ipswich, ensuring consistent methodologies for naming, placement, routes and modal integration, and playing an important part in designing and conducting consultations with stakeholders and local communities.
Stephen Read has been managing multi-disciplinary teams and high profile implementation projects in the field of wayfinding and environmental branding for over 30 years, living and working in North America, the Middle East and mainland Europe.
