Wayfinding in transport hubs...
28th April, 2009 by Jessika Keegan
As everyday people we navigate through the world; sometimes we know where we are going on instinct and other times we use signage. I’ve been travelling of late and have found the signage at Southern Cross pretty ordinary. It is a fine example of a great building but has dropped the ball with updating its wayfinding systems. I’m an experienced everyday transport user that grapples with the trams and trains of inner city Melbourne but as a designer see the major transport hub as a perfect case study. My associates thought this too. I’m apart of a student group studying at the Swinburne University of Technology and currently we are researching the Southern Cross Train Station wayfinding system. We require your friendly assistance in completing our survey or providing us with any opinions. Should our biggest inner city transport hub be updated?
