Left, Right, Up, Down

New Directions in Signage and Wayfinding

The signage system designed for Beirut Art Center was featured in this book that presents the unsung heroes of functional graphic design. The true importance of signage and wayfinding systems only becomes evident when they do not work. 

Left, Right, Up, Down presents current approaches to design that provide orientation in and around buildings. The book provides myriad examples that combine graphic design and architecture so well that the result elegantly meets the specific navigational needs of the situation. The range of attractive, experimental, low-budget, and flexible solutions make it an inspirational and insightful examination of current possibilities for practical applied information graphics.
