Community focused wayfinding

Enfield Walk

If you’ve ever been to a park, shopping precinct, arrived at a transport hub and navigated from one platform to another or even a music festival then you would have experienced wayfinding signage. Wayfinding is the information system put in place to help you navigate through an environment with the aim to enhance both your understanding and experience of a space.

To achieve a great spatial experience, it’s importance to understand user behaviour to help people navigate their way through an environment while creating a memorable experience.

The interpretive signage strategy at the Enfield Intermodal lookout was structured to take the local community on a journey of the site from heritage, local environment to current operations.

We recycled materials from the 64 hectare site, using timber railway sleepers and steel rail tracks. A graphic element featured on the signs references the sites sloping pathway rising up and down along the Enfield walkway.

The feedback from the community and client was extremely positive. I’m happy to say that the signage and overall experience was received extremely well from the public at the community launch on April 28.

Wayfinding is moving students through a 24 hour space to help them find the library or student central services. It’s adding graphics to a space where people want to stay, relax and think. It’s moving people out of a space in an emergency very quickly and safely and can even reinforce the brand values of an organisation, creating a space staff are proud of enjoy coming to work at everyday.
