For most significant property development projects, sooner or later wayfinding or signage will come up on the to do list. If it’s something you’ve not had to deal with recently or ever – trying to identify suitable suppliers could prove a little baffling.
Here’s a little guidance on how and where to find suitable suppliers for the job.
It might surprise you, but work to understand the complexities of the brain processes involved in wayfinding and navigation has been a fertile area of academic research for many decades. Its importance was recognised in the award of the 2014 The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, to three research scientists. Here we discuss how the principles underpinning the development of wayfinding strategies reflect how our brains work. Proving, if you needed it, that wayfinding design is part art – part science.
When designing a new wayfinding scheme, there is a tendency to focus on the main public spaces. Here we discuss why it’s important not to forget about the back of house requirements and some tips for getting the most out of your investment.
AI, virtual/augmented reality and Internet of things might be stealing the tech limelight, but for wayfinding designers, the pace of change in digital screen technology is equally enthralling.

Are we approaching a tipping point when it comes to the cost of incorporating digital screens in wayfinding signs? And how to you choose the best option for your scheme?
