Directional Sense Authors
Janet R. Carpman, PhD and Myron A. Grant, MLA are wayfinding consultants who have worked on hundreds of analysis, planning, and design projects in large, complex, public facilities.

They are authors of the award-winning books, Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around (Institute for Human Centered Design) and Design that Cares: Planning Health Facilities for Patients and Visitors (Jossey Bass) and partners in Carpman Grant Associates, Wayfinding Consultants, Ann Arbor, MI.
