A well designed architectural setting achieves its greatest potential when all the elements such as form, colour and material combine to produce a unique sense of place. Axon helps you achieve this goal through its professional wayfinding services and a quarter-century partnership with Modulex.
The art and science of wayfinding is as old as human civilization. It encompasses all of the ways in which people orient themselves in physical space and navigate from place to place.
Traditional people used various natural signs to aid them in their wayfinding endeavours. Today, we have modern techniques and materials that make wayfinding aesthetic as well as easy.
At Axon, we use the term “wayfinding” to include planning for signage, graphical communication, logical space planning, tactile elements, and provision for special needs users. In our wayfinding solutions, these concepts are typically represented as a set of architectural and/or design elements that aid orientation.
Through our wayfinding consultancies, we make it easier for people to find their way around. We provide services at all scales ranging from small buildings to the tallest skyscrapers. We also work with a variety of businesses including, but not limited to, healthcare, offices, residential and recreational premises, educational institutions, hotels and hospitality companies, and other commercial and not-for-profit organizations.
Wayfinding means knowing where you are, knowing your destination, following the best route, recognizing your destination, and finding your way back. When your clients cannot do this, it leaves them frustrated. Conversely, appropriate wayfinding and signage results in greater customer comfort and satisfaction.
At Axon, we have a specially trained team of wayfinding experts who work with you as consultants to determine the optimal wayfinding solution for your premises. We consultancy service covers both exterior as well as interior wayfinding and we work carefully to ensure that all wayfinding elements are carefully designed to support the movement of people.
