Getting About

Hey everyone, its been a little while since my last post but do not despair I’m still alive! Recently I was lucky enough to have the chance to write a small article for the Wayfinding UK blog you can view the post here. The post called upon research I did during my university project and is based…

Airport Wayfinding – Sign Layouts

Hey everyone, another post which shows some of the updates I’ve made to the airport wayfinding system I am looking into. This week I looked into the typeface weight on the signs and also how they should be laid out in terms of spacing between icons, arrows and text. Below are a few image examples…

Airport Wayfinding Icons – Updated & Explained

Hi Everyone! I have decided that I would like to revisit my degree project right from the start and expand/improve upon everything I had previously done for it. The first thing I decided to do was to take another critical look at the icons I had produced. Since looking at the icons again I’m not sure why…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 19

Managed to get my…

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 13

Today was, very much, another type orientated day. A little bit of sketch book work, followed up by some illustrator to smooth off those curves and realise the sketches in digital form.

Academic Year 2010/11 – Day 12

In my presentation I’m going for a quite minimal look, I’d like to put up the basic bullet points and main points, I can then expand upon them through talking. I feel this is the strongest way of getting my project across, as purely written text will be quite dull to read and may not…
