Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
As more spaces turn into public areas and become increasingly complicated, people, more than ever, need to know where they are and where they are going. To bring clarity to this confusion, graphic design is crucial, but the design of wayfinding systems is also a collaborative process.
This is a stress-relieving handbook for designers working across all disciplines. Exciting illustrations and case studies look at how to incorporate logos, graphics, color, and type to relate a complete wayfinding system to the character of a city, exhibition, or sportsground, and to represent its unique qualities. Checklists of requirements provide a blueprint for developing successful and attractive wayfinding systems. Every aspect is detailed, including stakeholder groups; criteria of specific jobs; design elements; fabrication, installation, and placement of signs and banners; and maintenance and management systems.

negative assessment is based upon two things:
(1) From a content standpoint the author completely ignores the substantial work that has been done in the social and biological sciences on wayfinding (see, for example, R.G. Golledge (ed), Wayfinding Behavior: Cognitive Mapping and Other Spatial Processes).
(2) From a physical standpoint the book is nearly unreadable due to the decision to utilize an inappropriate font in too small a point size in a black upon bright yellow background. (The point size is also reduced for
some figure captions.) As a counterpoint, some pages are printed in white on black. There is an occasional page with black type on a white background but even here the inappropriate choice of point size defeats the reader.
Since I cannot read the book with out serious eyestrain, I am returning my copy to Amazon.
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!
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.
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.
