Sign Research Foundation Releases New Look at Digital Wayfinding

digital wayfindingThe Sign Research Foundation’s latest research explores how digital wayfinding is transforming various sectors. Digital Wayfinding Trends: Lessons Learned from Museums, Healthcare, and Transit Experiences was written by Leslie Wolke, founder, MapWell Studio.

The research explores eight digital wayfinding experiences to learn what makes for the most successful and seamless blend of digital and physical guidance. The goal, Wolke writes, is to “assemble lessons in user experience and system design that can be applied to tomorrow’s digital wayfinding projects. There is a great deal to be learned from interacting with this generation of tools and assessing their successes and limitations. As we know, technology evolves swiftly, only to be outpaced by our expectations for it.”

Digital Wayfinding Trends also includes a four-page executive summary, the perfect piece to share with clients, customers, and municipal leaders. The full report is available here.

Wolke is an independent consultant who works with architects, design firms and institutions to design and develop wayfinding technology strategies and tools. She previously authored the SRF research Wayfinding Management: Models & Methods in Healthcare Environments.
