Observing and learning from nature is not a new concept within the design community. In the modern era, Frank Lloyd Wright famously developed his theory of organic architecture by studying nature. But beyond form and pattern, how can designers today look at natural phenomena to better inform their designs and be more responsive to human behavior? SEGD member firm BrandCulture (Sydney, Australia) is meeting this challenge by applying theories of “swarm intelligence” to their designs to create better wayfinding and navigation systems.
The novel coronavirus has shown how vulnerable many sectors are to future pandemics. While occupancy levels are lower, it’s the perfect time to create more resilient, adaptive spaces, and the experiential graphic design industry has the potential to lead the way.

Moving around campus is now a very different experience. Instead of locating buildings using confusing acronyms like E7A, the firm helped Macquarie introduce addresses like University Avenue and Wally’s Walk to facilitate navigation.
