Sažetak
Public places like student dorms consist of many sections positioned on different locations of the dormito¬ry complex. Wayfinding signage based on pictograms can be a useful tool for navigating visitors through the dorm area. In this paper, three sets of wayfinding pictograms are designed and tested. The sets consisted of twelve pictograms for indoor and outdoor signage. They were evaluated by the student population who rated the guessablity of the signs and provided the explanation for their ratings. Three the worst-rated pictograms were redesigned according to participants’ responses and generated better effects on the target audience. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of testing wayfinding signs during the early design stages and stress the importance of the communication between designers and users.
