This course will take the basic and graphical methods of presenting information learned in Information Design 1 and apply those skills to full information systems and wayfinding. Wayfinding and signage are integral to our environments and how people navigate through spaces. This course will teach designers to understand human psychology, some architecture basics, industrial design basics, colour theory, typography and graphical solutions in order to design signage systems that are successful and effective in terms of the environment they communicate within. It's a multidisciplinary field that is constantly evolving with both physical and digital components and this course will aim to expose all those avenues and possibilities.
