Item description for Wayshowing: A Guide to Environmental Signage Principles and Practices by Per Mollerup...

Riffing on the techie term "wayfinding", which designers and manufacturers use when talking about the function of signs and signage systems as they are used by the viewer, this book, by acclaimed graphic designer and author Per Mollerup, seeks to find a more precise visual language for what sign designers actually do, which is to show the way. Unfortunately, as Mollerup points out, many designers never master the art of wayshowing themselves. For wayshowing relates to wayfinding as writing relates to reading and as talking relates to hearing: The purpose of wayshowing is to facilitate wayfinding. In this accessible but invigorating investigation, Mollerup examines international sign systems and architectural landmarks in detail with his trademark candor and good humor. His analysis is at once pithy, scholarly, and historical. Edited by Per Mollerup. Hardcover, 6.75 x 12 in./256 pgs / 250 color.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wayshowing: A Guide to Environmental Signage Principles and Practices?

Elegant Signs and Mapping  Jul 2, 2007
Fun book about environmental and installation design and graphics. Author is particularly fond of Swiss design and the best practice examples bend toward this aesthetic. A dash of diversity would be great in WayShowing v2. Mollerup nails the practical idea of symbolic vocabulary and designing language independent information.
