Digital Wayfinding and Signage Design
A more inclusive, streamlined and intuitive customer experience is made possible with digital wayfinding. This innovative form of signage design brings the ideal solution to many of the common issues faced by large spaces with high footfall. Digital wayfinding, thoroughly researched using behavioural analysis and real world data, can boost sales, increase employee satisfaction, and encourage customers and passengers to keep coming back. In locations such as hospitals and train stations, effective signage design can increase wellbeing and mitigate stress. Thanks to electronic touch screen mapping, and interactive kiosks that help people get their bearings. Only the most essential information is used, so people are empowered to find their own way.
Digital signage design generates data that, over time, can pinpoint behaviour patterns, allowing you to easily adapt layouts and interfaces to match preferences and increase satisfaction. It creates a personalised experience that includes everyone and integrates with the different systems that make your space run smoothly.
Using ergonomics in our signage design allows us to fit spaces to the people who use them every day. For each client, we conduct in-depth research on the way people use a space, to pinpoint needs and requirements.
Ergonomically designed signage is vital for making spaces accessible in a way that empowers everyone to move independently. It ensures that foot traffic flows seamlessly around the location, so everyone who passes through gets where they need to be. In-depth research into human behaviour is fundamental to our design process.
