Request an Interview with Jan Carpman

Can’t find your way out of a paper bag? It’s happened again. You’ve gone into an unfamiliar place, or even a place that you’ve been a hundred times before. You turn around a few times, look for a familiar exit, and… nothing. You’re lost. As usual.
Many people feel like they were born with no sense of direction. They miss flights, show up late for appointments and limit their travel plans, fearing they’ll never be able to get where they’re going.
for 30 years, architectural sociologist Jan Carpman has been planning and designing buildings with the directionally challenged in mind – and now, she’s helping you learn to find your way around anywhere.

Invite Jan on your show to learn:

  • How landmarks can be a secret wayfinding weapon.
  • The right way to read a map. (Hint: just give it a spin!)
  • How to decipher the often-confusing words and numbers you find on signs.
  • how to take advantage of wayfidning technology like GPS, apps, and online maps.
  • What to ask when you ask for directions.


Jan Carpman, Ph.D., is a wayfinding consultant and experienced speaker who has worked on hundred of projects on large, complex public facilities. She holds degrees from Harvard, the University of Michigan and the University of Rochester. Along with Myran Grant, she is the author of  DIRECTIONAL SENSE: How to find Your Way Around and DESIGN THAT CARES: Planning Health Facilities for Patients ad Visitors.


Michigan, Ohio, Indiana.

Nationwide by arrangement and via telephone.
