5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know where to go
A book based exclusively on the design of directions and wayfinding sounds a bit dry, initially, but I was unprepared for the breadth and relevant imagery given in the book. As a creative who works in a firm that often gets asked to prepare and conceptualize building and office spaces, I looked to particular interest how wayfinding systems and signals could be both...

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know where to go, December 8, 2010
This review is from: Left, Right, Up, Down: New Directions in Signage and Wayfinding (Hardcover)
A book based exclusively on the design of directions and wayfinding sounds a bit dry, initially, but I was unprepared for the breadth and relevant imagery given in the book. As a creative who works in a firm that often gets asked to prepare and conceptualize building and office spaces, I looked to particular interest how wayfinding systems and signals could be both entertaining to look at and convey an alternative identity while also providing basic information. Delightful read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun with signage and wayfinding systems, November 20, 2010
This review is from: Left, Right, Up, Down: New Directions in Signage and Wayfinding (Hardcover)
A fun, seriously helpful book in examining signage and wayfinding systems. In this digital era, navigation relies less on sheer information and more on the aesthetics of a space and its purpose. This book closely examines contemporary wayfinding systems - Pentagram's offices, or an avant-garde parking lot - reflects the space's brand and purpose by showing an assortment of creative solutions. Particularly helpful is the last chapter on digital navigation to show how technology is rapidly influencing design and its permeance. A must-have guide for any firm or designer working on branding, logos, and creative space projects.
