(The Science of Non-Verbal Communication)

This webinar will provide an overview of how to effectively create and use symbols for clearer wayfinding. We begin by defining the different types of symbols and principles for using them to best advantage, followed by case studies, including the Beijing Olympics sports symbol system, the new transportation sign system for the NYC’s MTA, and more.

Educational Takeaways

  • Symbol sign types, principles and usage
  • The semiotics of non-verbal communication
  • Better wayfinding through clear graphic messaging
