Weekend colour inspiration – using colour for wayfinding…

This week we are looking at how colour can be used for wayfinding in buildings and landscapes – even at temporary events – with this great photo that we spotted over on Pinterest.


We have long been fans of using colour within spaces to assist with the wayfinding within the building – whole walls painted one colour to aid navigation for instance, but this photo shows that the graphics do not have to be at all complicated to create an instant understanding of where you are within a location.

With a neutral grey background, the graphic is easy to understand, and the colours could be linked with other architectural elements to provide an navigational language.

A very simple trick for commercial settings…
