Legible London is a seminal project in the history of city wayfinding. It has influenced the last two decades of city wayfinding systems, largely defining the sign typologies, content criteria, information architecture and graphic cues used by many subsequent city systems.
In addition to its impact on public awareness, its real innovation has been as a catalyst to integrate wayfinding across the city. It was built on a programme of stakeholder consultation, based on core logics.
The system has been extensively tested and reviewed and has more proven impact than any other system.
