“Guerilla” Wayfinding Signs Encourage Walking

More and more, wayfinding signs are popping up in US towns and cities, directing unfamiliar drivers to key sites and facilities. A new, “guerrilla” wayfinding guidance system – called Walk [Your City] – is directed to pedestrians and cyclists instead.

Focused on the twin themes of wayfinding and “walkability,” these signs encourage people on foot and on bikes to explore new destinations by giving them time/distance information (e.g. “15 minutes away”) and a QR code to scan for directions and information.

The Walk [Your City] website enables anyone to plan and order pedestrian signs. Signs are made and shipped and then the originators install them. WYC signs have been installed in Mount Hope, WV; Santa Fe, NM; Atlantic Beach, NC; and Atlanta, GA among other places.

If you’re directionally challenged you need the award-winning book, Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around, by Janet R. Carpman and Myron A. Grant.
