In a departure from our usual format, September will see the first SDS Big Debate. With the help of a multidisciplinary panel we’ll be addressing the role of wayfinding consultancy within the built environment. We’ll be exploring whether it’s really needed, why it’s needed and perhaps touch upon what the future holds for those practicing the art.
Visit the event page for further information and details about how to secure your place.
One of our newest members, ABG Design created a new signage scheme for the National Army Museum. For more details, visit this webpage in our news section.

We are pleased to confirm that we will be streaming all future events (technology permitting) through Facebook Live.
