    Environmental Graphics, Wayfinding & Experiential Design

    What role does Environmental Graphic Design & Wayfinding play in shaping the experience of the environment? How can we ensure these environments are accessible? What are the standards? How do these apply? Wayne McCutcheon will discuss Experiential Design and how Environmental Graphics and Wayfinding can shape the spaces where we live, learn, work and play. How can wayfinding be a positive part of the experience and build the ‘brand’ of a building or public space.  Wayne will also review the range of standards that apply to Environmental Graphic Design -including the proposed Ontario Standards, American and International Standards. He will examine how Universal Design may be studied and applied to projects to create highly accessible environments and creating positive experiences for the users.
