Wayfinding and Environmental Graphics

Scott Singer, Johnson & Wales University - Providence


Wayfinding and environmental graphics are very important in today’s world. These graphics use color, icons, typography, and additional design elements to help people navigate through a space. The project that was given was to create a set of wayfinding signs that would be utilized in the John J. Bowen Center of Science and Innovation, here at Johnson & Wales University. The way- finding throughout the building was and is very limited, students would get lost, or needed help to locate the bathroom, copy rooms, and even classrooms.
