When there’s a will, there’s a Wayfinding.
Navigating man-made environments is an aspect of our everyday lives made possible by wayfinding. Communicating where things are through arrows, maps, signs and more can help those visiting your place of business to have a stress-free, and pleasant experience.
Not being able to find things properly can frustrate customers, and lose repeat business which is why high-quality wayfinding is crucial to a positive customer experience.
Effective wayfinding is also a safety measure. Wayfinding can be used to direct traffic to avoid blocking walkways, help people locate exits, and help people locate customer service or help kiosks in case of emergencies.
