Wayfinding: Retail and Otherwise

Wayfinding: Retail and Otherwise

Stepping outside the normal box for retail navigation, the wayfaring signs implemented at the Portland Meadows give a new perspective on visitor guidance. This Wayfinding: Retail and Otherwise concept is that of the Official Manufacturing Company … a design-and-more agency. If your approach would have been different, please see it in the context of a racetrack and betting parlor not boutique. Now scratch your head and see how you could better guide your customers. See the Wayfinding: Retail and Otherwise gallery below to step through various directional situations.
