Concise and approachable breakdown of what the field of Wayfinding entails.

An excellent source regarding all public information design. I kept a copy on my table in the studio during the entire time I was working on a transportation project and found myself flipping through it often. It's informative with great examples. I highly recommend it to anyone.

doesn't capture much of my attention, most information here is already known and doesn't really excite me.. but it does cover a substantial amount of relevant information that is needed for effective way-finding though!

2 stars.

This is definitely a beginners book, but it offers a good overview of wayfinding along with some of its history and what is involved in working in the industry.

Good introduction to information design for public places and buildings. Kind of a primer for environmental design.

After seeing this incorporated here Im not sure why more books dont do something similar by showing the content in a logical way. Talking out loud here, I think theres a great opportunity to incorporate a table of contents in a related way Along with the process and content, the design of the book is quite strong. I enjoy
