Imperial College London (ICL) is a leader in academic excellence and is often ranked as one of the top ten universities in the world. The university is home to over 17,000 students from 125 countries, who are drawn to the university for its leadership in science, engineering, business, and medicine.
The role of wayfinding is to significantly improve the experience. To make university sites more accessible, improve circulation and use of space, and create a clearer sense of place.
As part of a wide-ranging project, Applied completed the Imperial College London Wayfinding Guidelines. Based on designs refined through a number of pilot projects, the guidelines set out rules for optimum placement, content and design of external and internal wayfinding signs for use across Imperial’s multiple sites. Designs are currently being implemented across the University.
