Signage systems & wayfinding
Metrolink network is one of the most successful light rail systems in the UK, carrying nearly 20 million passengers every year. My job was to work on the design and implementation of the Metrolink signage system across a main line and the city centre. This project lasted 12 months and included design for new build stations and restorations of ones dating back to the 1950's. Signs and Icons had to adhere to DDA compliance and also give a welcoming and reassuring feel to Manchester's local and international visitors.
My other role was to design and develop the ticket machine user interface. Working closely with engineers in Germany, We had to develop flow-through diagrams for every user eventuality and ensure clarity and simpleness as well as multi-lingual systems that could be adapted to the design.©Hemisphere
