Aihe on: · Topic of this course:

The Design of Signage Systems, as a part of the discipline ›visual design‹, analyzes and articulates the visual language that seem to govern the process of ›symbol‹ design. ›Symbol‹ conceived in the context of environmental directional signage having the potentials for constructing an effective graphical interface between the user and the intended facility. As designer we will translate our ideas into a system of symbols to solve the problem of message communications in a public facility.
