The Role of Signage & Icons

Back when I worked in the signage manufacturing industry, there was a principle I was taught and internalized: Signage plays a pivotal role in an environment’s experience. 

This is typically thought of as just the aesthetics of a well-crafted, working sign and the thematic blending with the environment; however, it extends further into the UX (user experience) of a well-placed sign, its visibility and these ease of individuals in the space to find their way.  Wayfinding, when done right, achieves a seamless UX that is almost invisible in the environment, it just works but when done wrong can frustrate and confuse people.

About Me

I write a blog here, deliver presentations on the subject of 'future impact of innovation', host workshops for local talent, consult & advise startups and entrepreneurs, serve on the board of multiple startups, launch ideas into startups and sometimes gift them to other talented people to execute.

This blog is a space to share my thoughts about future trends and consolidate the latest news I find interesting to share. Alternatively my Facebook page has the same objective.
