Escort: An Emergency and Safety Wayfinding Signage Design
Establishing a Wayfinding Signage system will result in a population's heightened understanding and awareness of emergency and safety information. The wide public distribution of aesthetic and functional design visuals will inform and train people to immediately recognise signage information and assist them to respond to different emergency situations with reduced confusion, anxiety and stress.
The VID team conducts this emergency and safety wayfinding system, which focuses on the creation of a concise, uniform and aesthetically pleasing and informative visual signage design system. This is a partial result from the Shelters and Materials Management Project, World Design Capital Taipei 2016: Adaptive City effort.
There are two signage system phases: the Normative and the Featured phases. The Normative phase features existing national public signs, while the Featured phase, an extension of the Normative, presents an independent wayfinding signage system.
This talk will share the process of design, the way of thinking in designing the systematic visual system, and the simulation activities that allow users to view and to become acquainted with this user-friendly community-based emergency and safety wayfinding signage design system.
