Follow me | Signage designs: defining spaces
Published by Gingko Press, 2nd March 2015
Hardcover 288 pages
In contrast to some of the unrealistic images of signage available on places like pinterest, as a source of inspiration the 51 projects featured here focus on clear, simple wayfinding schemes with clever but realistic use of materials.
This book reminds me why good signage schemes excite me. The copy isn’t the best but it doesn’t matter, it’s a lovely collection of international projects. Some of the nicest contemporary work I’ve seen featured in one place. Good ideas achievable with sensible budgets.
