Format: Hardcover
This is the best book I've ever read on signage and wayfinding. Most books in this category have lots of pictures with little to no practical information as to the how and why the system works.

The best thing about the book is that it is divided into chapters that cover nearly every type of building and the differences that need to be accounted for when designing signage and wayfinding systems for them. For example, how you design for an airport is different than how you design for a hospital which is different from the needs of a museum, etc. The end of each chapter then provides a very practical bullet point summary of best practices and things to keep in mind when creating the system. This summary is a great reference tool which you'll find yourself going back to again and again.

Besides hospitals, airports and museums, the book also has chapters on sports stadiums, corporate settings, urban wayfinding systems and just about every other niche disipline where signage and wayfinding would be used.

I agree with the editorial review that says this book is essential reading for professional graphic designers and students, town planners, architects and facility managers. Excellent!

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.

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.
