Make Commutes, Not Mazes! – Wayfinding Design in Urban Rails
Think about those times when you have to navigate through an unfamiliar airport or rail system. A few months ago, Roy decided to take a break from San Francisco, so Dallas was his first stop. He experienced quite a bit of frustration while making use of the public transit system in Dallas. He also witnessed similar experiences from fellow riders. As a designer, he created his own versions of the DART strip maps as a proposed remedy. For most riders, on-time performance alone won’t make a transit system dependable. They must feel confident maneuvering the system with effective navigational aids, and not overwhelmed by irrelevant information at each decision point they encounter. One size doesn’t fit all. With various references from all over the world, we can understand how each solution is catered to the system and the people they serve. Dallas can do better, and we can take action! LOCATION: SMU Dallas, Fondren Science Building, Room 123 NOTE: Parking passes will be sent to registered attendees REFRESHMENTS: Pizza & Drinks will be provided by SMU SCHEDULE: 6:30 - Doors Open for Networking 6:50 - Group Announcements 7:00 - Make Commutes, Not Mazes! by Roy Chan 8:00 - Q&A and Open Discussion SPEAKER: Roy Chan (@isRoying) is a self-proclaimed Problem Solver by Design currently working with early stage startups. He studied Digital Graphic Communication at Hong Kong Baptist University, and specialized in UX/Product Design during the inaugural cohort of Tradecraft in San Francisco. He believes in having clearly-defined goals and objectives, and making appropriate use of media or channels to achieve results. He has been working on digital devices, prints, physical objects, and experiences. When not designing, Roy likes to cook and travel, the latter enables him to satisfy his nerdy obsession in railways.
