Creating A Sense of Place
EGD plays a crucial role in how people use and experience the built environment. It helps define space as well as a building’s personality by reinforcing the character and overall intentions of the architecture through the combined use of graphics, directional cues, and signage. Well designed signage and environmental graphic programs help to inform, direct, and identify, ultimately creating a sense of well-being, safety, and security in unfamiliar environments. An environmental designer’s job, is to anticipate visitor patterns and enhance the overall user experience by intentionally leading visitors through your space, never letting user failure be an option.
