Wayfinding in Design

Topic Exploration 7

The last topic exploration was about universal design for transportation. Explanations, like a definition of transportation or principles of the universal design, etc. helped the students to understand what aspect of wayfinding in design the presenters want to introduce to them. What I got from this presentation is that the use of design shouldn’t be narrowed down only for companies’ profit. The use of design should be for all people by solving everyone’s pain points, by understanding that people have various pain points and thinking how the design you create can be applied for everyone. The initial step of universal design is understanding that not just one pain point exists but multiple and tones of pain points also exist. That understanding is the wayfinding for universal design and that is the basic attitude of all designers should have.
