In response to the Pandemic, Applied created The COVID-19 Design Toolkit.
The Toolkit is a ready-to-use set of guidelines of how to place signs in any environment. It shows where to place information in order to really impact people’s behaviour. The Toolkit includes a universal set of signs and icons that is immediately available, as well as templates that can be adjusted to suit any location.
The Toolkit was developed for managers of public spaces, with an aim to practically help them maintain socially-distanced safe environments. We made a decision to make the toolkit freely available, as coordinating with others to create simple and collective signs is more effective.
We drew on our extensive wayfinding planning & design experience, as well as knowledge of how people interact with places and how to ‘nudge’ their behaviour. The Toolkit received the Gold Award in the London Design Awards 2020.
