  • Wayfinding
    services right is equally important to you We urge all our customers to evaluate our products in real circumstances and not in the office Context is everything Maps without signs usually don t work If your passengers are trying to use your buses or trains you will want them to find you with the least possible effort Consider the parallel situation for drivers When using a road atlas the motorist would quickly become lost if there were no road signs Even with satellite navigation drivers still need road signs Wayfinding does not just mean signage A public transport user unfamiliar with an area or service needs signs as a minimum to get to your entry point Maps will make their lives easier if they are well designed Entry points to your services don t just mean the station entrance or bus stop they also include the display on the front of the bus the bus stop flag and more We will help you with as much or as little of this as you wish but urge you to put yourself in the position of a customer divorce yourself from what you may know and try to see it through the eyes of the unitiated That s what we do and we don t pretend it is easy In the UK we have standardized road signs and markings Whether you are in London Lands End Holyhead or Aberdeen learn the highway code and you should be fine Public transport users are severely disadvantaged compared with the motorist where there are no standards at all We aim to harmonize everything under your control for your customers to have as easy a life as possible That way they will come back for more We can even try to improve things not under your

    packaging or written instructions Packaging has to be attractive in the true sense of the word and information design must be attractive too in order to capture the readers attention in the first place However the primary function of any map is to help the user to plan or find his way Producing one that achieves this is no mean feat and it is routinely under estimated how complex a task it actually is when done well Maps can fail in two basic ways they can of course simply be inaccurate and the outcome becomes obvious but often only when used they can also fail when the factual content is sound but presented poorly Everything on a map is symbolic and all facts are conveyed by implication alone Maps are not like written instructions and a high cognitive load is being put on the user Different situations require different mapping solutions A geographical map may be ideal in one context and a straight line diagram better in another Scale is usually very important and simply making a map bigger or smaller is not what scale is about Scale is about proportion and content We are here to help you make
