TADD 3300 Wayfinding & Signage Design (2 credits)
Our need to communicate with our fellow humans is fundamental to our well-being and, indeed, our survival. We have long made marks on objects and in our surrounding environment to communicate information visually. These marks communicate meaning, and over time has become a shared language among the people who made and understood them. Signage and wayfinding design are essential and most commonly expressed in unified signs that informationally and visually knit together a site, a collection of related sites, such as regional parks or global corporate facilities, or networks, such as a transportation system. This course focuses on understanding wayfinding and designing signage to communicate our surrounding environment better visually. Prerequisite(s): TADD 2300.
