Wayfinding Graphics – Strategic navigation through spaces and around places

A college freshman venturing out of her dorm into the maze of buildings where she hopes she’ll find her class…

The world is filled with complex spaces we need to navigate in order to get to where we want to be. Solid wayfinding design and signage can easily change an intimidating environment into a friendly space which is simple to navigate and enjoyable to visit.

The Ten8 design philosophy is based on collaboration, and that begins with understanding the needs of our clients. Are you looking to move large crowds quickly to their destinations, or hoping to create a space where people can linger on the way from one activity to another? Do you want people to follow a set path from A to B, or have options to explore the grounds? Once we know what you hope to accomplish with a wayfinding system, we can design signage which coordinates with the image and atmosphere of the space, whether that’s reassuringly authoritative or playful and whimsical.

Whatever your wayfinding needs, Ten8 has the knowledge and experience to get you there. At colleges and universities throughout Missouri and Illinois, we’ve developed wayfinding and informational signage that has helped nervous college freshmen move from class to class with ease, and have time left over to meet new friends in the campus lounge. For the St. Louis MetroLink transportation system, we’ve created signage that makes sure no one hops on the wrong train. And at Washington Dulles International Airport, one of the nation’s busiest airports, we’ve helped to roll out a wayfinding system  that gives travelers confidence that they’ll be able to find their next gate in time.
