Aihe on: · Topic of this course:

Environmental Graphic Design embraces many design disciplines including graphic, architectural, interior, landscape, and industrial design, all concerned with the visual aspects of wayfinding, communicating identity and information, and shaping the idea of place. Environmental graphic designers are becoming more than just part of the design team, taking a lead role in the design of signage, wayfinding and visual communication systems. This course will explore techniques developed as part of the Environmental Graphic Design process to the overall design and planning process in order to welcome, inform, help to orient, regulate and sometimes just encourage people.
