Wayfinding Systems / Site Navigation

Wayfinding site navigation system


Where are you and where are you heading to? People use their knowledge and previous experiences to find their way through environments. Wayfinding navigation systems have the function to inform people of their surroundings in an unfamiliar environment. It is important to show information at strategic points to guide people in the right direction.

Site Navigation Basics

It’s simple really. Create a comprehensive, clear and consistent visual communication system with concise messaging. When it comes to design, being consistent in typography, icons, color and material choices are key factors. An effective wayfinding system is based on human behavior. The signs should only show relevant information to the space or location.
