Ever find yourself wandering aimlessly through a building unable to find your way back to the right entrance? And those pesky directional signs are no help. Introduce a little color in your life using wayfinding. By definition Wayfinding is simply using graphics or landmarks to show travelers their location and path of travel.

Bad Sign

Though signage is the most widely used form of wayfinding there is a more subliminal approach and more effective. Ever notice a wall painted a different color or a bold accent color in the carpet or floor finish? This is wayfinding by using interior features to help you navigate through a space. This way a particular color is associated with one part of the building and a different color with another part of a building. Don’t over overlook a color scheme as just a minor detail. It is good interior design using wayfinding.
