Item description for Wayfinding: Designing and Implementing Graphic Navigational Systems by Craig Berger...

A stress-relieving handbook for designing wayfinding systems.

As we get more public spaces, and as they become increasingly complicated, people, more than ever, need to know where they are and where they are going. To bring clarity to this confusion, graphic design is crucial, but the design of wayfinding systems is also a collaborative process.

This is a stress-relieving handbook for designers working across all disciplines. Exciting illustrations and case studies look at how to incorporate logos, graphics, color, and type to relate a complete wayfinding system to the character of a city, exhibition, sportsground etc, and to represent its unique qualities. Checklists of requirements and "tool kits" of elements provide a blueprint for developing successful and attractive wayfinding systems. Every aspect is detailed: stakeholder groups; criteria of specific jobs; design elements; fabrication, installation and placement of signs and banners; maintenance and management systems.

Wayfinding is essential reading for Professional graphic designers and students, Town planners, Architects and Facility managers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wayfinding: Designing and Implementing Graphic Navigational Systems?

Wayfinding  Mar 29, 2008
Wayfinding: Designing and Implementing Graphic Navigational Systems

After over 10 years in the museum business it is important to not over do signage and wayfinding. I must say this is a wonderful book that gives a detailed view of wayfinding principles. I highly recommend this book for all interior and museum design professionals.

a global vision in wayfinding  Feb 21, 2007
es un libro donde abarcas todas las manifestaciones de la senalizacion en los ambientes urbanos, muy completo con lista de recomendaciones en cada uno de los capitulos (mapas, minusvalidos, exteriores, etc.)
Una gran compra
A substantial disappointment  Jan 24, 2007
Based upon my professional interest in the way that people navigate in space (I am a geographer) and the very positive reviews I purchased a copy of this book. My
negative assessment is based upon two things:
(1) From a content standpoint the author completely ignores the substantial work that has been done in the social and biological sciences on wayfinding (see, for example, R.G. Golledge (ed), Wayfinding Behavior: Cognitive Mapping and Other Spatial Processes).
(2) From a physical standpoint the book is nearly unreadable due to the decision to utilize an inappropriate font in too small a point size in a black upon bright yellow background. (The point size is also reduced for
some figure captions.) As a counterpoint, some pages are printed in white on black. There is an occasional page with black type on a white background but even here the inappropriate choice of point size defeats the reader.
Since I cannot read the book with out serious eyestrain, I am returning my copy to this site.
Wayfinding Design Review  Jan 11, 2007
Excellent content - a must have for anyone in the wayfinding profession. An excellent reference for those in related design professions; i.e. Architecture, Interiors, Planning, etc.

great resource   Oct 27, 2006
This book is a must have at my office. As someone who writes and designs wayfinding programs, I find myself often referring to this book. It contains step-by-step guidelines for producing successful wayfinding programs and is chock full of useful information on topics such as map design, symbols, legibility, colors and sign placement. Much of this information is gleaned from project audits, research studies and/or contributed by some of the best, most experienced minds in the business. Where else can you get all of this valuable information in one place?

The book is beautifully produced, in an easy-to-read format, and contains full-color pictures of well designed wayfinding signs and other elements.

When I'm not using this book, I leave it on display in my reception area. Visitors love looking through the book and I believe they gain a new appreciation of wayfinding by doing so. That's another benefit of the book for me. Therefore, I highly recommend this book by Craig Berger.
