We’re hosting a two-day information-design course, so sign up now

Only weeks away from the start of Sound Walk September, we’re pleased to announce that you can get your hands ‘dirty’ in a workshop spread over two Saturday mornings in September, where you will learn how to design your own wayfinding system.

Our How to design your own wayfinding system is hosted by Martin Foessleitner and Linda Rubene, both of hi-pe.at, a Vienna-based atelier on informations design, where Martin and Linda, with their colleagues, build navigational frameworks that spread joy (yes, really) by making users easily familiar with new concepts, information, and places.

When you have the responsibility of a physical space, particularly one that’s designed for its users to explore, you don’t want those under your care to get lost. At the same time, if they are to explore an area that’s not overly well known to them, you also might want to evoke the sense of wonder that can come with exploration and discovery.

Striking this balance is difficult, but possible. Martin and Linda will explain how.

The workshop will be held in the mornings of Saturday September 11 and Saturday September 18, from 8:30am till noon, Vienna time (CEST).

Through the workshop you will:

  • Understand the relevance and principles of navigation and orientation.
  • Learn how to design your own wayfinding system for your venue, garden, exhibition, collection.
  • Have a first prototype of your own project, digital and analogue.

Martin and Linda will take you on a journey, through a hands-on experience, where you will design a system for others to find their way through a venue of your choosing.

Back in August last year, Martin was an early café guest, in which he talked about information design for the garden of Schönbrunn Palace, in Vienna.
Martin is the founder and managing director of hi-pe.at, which since 1999 has been developing universal design for municipalities, industrial enterprises, and non-profit organisations. 
With ten years of management experience at a global Japanese digital imaging company, Martin now shares his knowledge at various European educational institutions, including Sigmund Freud University Vienna and the Art Academy of Latvia. He is also a board member at designaustria and a organizer of the IIIDawards for Information Design. 

Don’t wait too long with booking your ticket, as seats are limited, and the few early-bird tickets are even more restricted.

If you’re keen on improving your information design skills in a context of real-world navigation, let Martin and Linda point you the way to good design around the principles of navigation and orientation. Sign up now!
