Digital Wayfinding

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

Wayfinding Goes Digital

From touchscreens to handheld devices, the future of digital wayfinding is in your hands.

Long considered the flashy stepsister of traditional signage, digital signage has generally been known for its chameleon-like ability to convey multiple messages, loop promotions, or display ambient imagery. Think Times Square, highway billboards, and retail marketing. But although it can be big, bright, and bold, it’s had trouble getting outside the box.

University of Texas at Austin Wayfinding

Signing the “Model Village” 

A new wayfinding program helps the University of Texas regain its sense of place and open its arms to the Austin community.

“The finest university campuses in the world have always been places—model villages, to borrow Thomas Jefferson’s notion—where communal cohesion and strength are derived as much from the physical experience as from      any philosophy or values that may be espoused.”

--Robert Berdahl, former president of the University of Texas at Austin
