This assignment involved pathfinding to created a map that visually explains how to transport a large, unwieldy 63-inch sphere between specific locations with several waypoints in the Massachusetts College of Art and Design campus. This was a team project of 4 members who had to analyze the campus and create a print-based document that contained elements of wayfinding, user experience, sequencing, and information design all in a hierarchical sense to represent time, distance, scale, and action in the most understandable way.
For this project, my team members and I decided to create an interactive printed map to help engage users into their journey. We used a tab language to help the users understand actions with a minimal use of words to convey our message.
Above are close-up views of the pull out tabs representing different floors and destinations.
Below are part of the tabs of action. Vectored images were created to help the user visually understand.
