Abstract:

"Wayfinding is the ultimate guide for graphic designers, architects and landscape architects, industrial designers, and planners working in this field. The issues of financing, planning, stakeholder development, design, and maintenance permeate every chapter. Written by the leading experts across a wide range of fields, this book reveals the many specialized sets of skill processes required for each area of designing wayfinding systems. Every professional working in this field should use this book as a guide to how wayfinding is employed in various projects, and to the ways in which professional specialties work with each other." "In approaching the subject from both theoretical and practical perspectives - wayfinding in graphic design, the functions of wayfinding, and the implementation of projects for both internal and external projects - this book provides all the knowledge you need to work successfully in this interesting and varied field."--Jacket.
