Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had purchased the original edition of this book and was skeptical that much had changed, however it had been useful as a reference and teaching guide for my office and was getting "dog-eared." I was pleasantly surprised that the "new and improved" edition actually is! This is a very well laid out reference book that now includes color images of compelling processes and projects. Also, the "goals and results" sections at the end of each section are helpful. Really a wonderful teaching and learning guide that gets people excited about the infinite possibilities in developing signage and wayfinding. Also, the previous version was larger and a bit more cumbersome to carry - the new version is a smart size.

Format: Hardcover
The first book set the standard as a professional guide for what it is to be an environmental graphic designer. This book takes things one step further by solidifying and elaborating on many of the issues discussed in the first book. In particular the introduction of illustration throughout the book and a greater exploration on documentation is particularly helpful. This book is also better suited for the academic design world than the first book with an improved structure that emphasizes process and it is easy to see how this can be integrated into class projects. The most important thing though is that the book carries the same balance of design and fabrication that has to be understood to work in the field. I think this book would actually be of even bigger benefit to fabricators and contractors looking to understand how to communicate with designers.

What an incredible resource. Chris Calori and David Vanden-Eynden offer even more first hand knowledge and insight in their second edition. This book truly is a complete guide in which thorough analysis, case studies and contributions from EGD’s foremost specialists combine to make design thinking and the design process absolutely accessible. The addition of full color printing throughout, and updated content on new technologies in wayfinding and fabrication are really helpful. This substantial and informative book is an important addition to my library, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Signage and Wayfinding.
