Diversified Wayfinding Design



The present study illustrated diversified designs under the current wayfinding system design. The advancement of science and technology, urban construction, close communication and cross-boundary trends, etc. made the wayfinding design no longer an isolated design, but integrate with the environment, architecture, space, information, emotion, technology, culture and life. The features for the ways of designing wayfinding were analyzed from three perspectives: the signage system, cross two-dimension and cross-boundaries. The diversified wayfinding design not only provided the sense of order in a particular environment or space, but also beautified the environment and set the mood. Moreover, it could offer people pleasure and delight so as to bring a healthier and more reasonable lifestyle and make the design to integrate with the life in a harmonious way.
