This website is dedicated to the design of orientation systems for pedestrians in general and, at least for the moment, to the Signage Planning Manual in particular.

The Signage Planning Manual is designed to be a planning aid for the concept of pedestrian signage systems. Based on thorough scientific research this manual contains ready-to-use information for the building owner as well as for the signage planner. The manual does not focus on the graphical or aesthetical aspects of signage but rather on a consequent and logical overall-conception of a signage system with special attention  to the underlying system of connecting paths given by the building functions and its architecture.

This Signage Planning Manual summarizes renowned international regulations and planning recommendations in a comprehensive way, which makes planning of user-friendly wayfinding systems easier. The planning criteria become more objective and transparent, thus creating the basis for an unbiased assessment of the planning results in terms of logic and overall quality.

The Signage Planning Manual is available via download from this website only. Please see the Order-Section for more information. There you will also find a reading sample.
