Bakke Center: Accessible Map by Charles Marleau

COURSE: Art 564: Graphic Design for Accessibility

MEDIUM: Map, Signage

With this work, a prototype map was created for the Bakke Recreation and Wellbeing Center on campus, with the goal of aiding first-time visitors with locating different parts of the facility. A focus was put on researching tactility to provide viewers with another avenue of comprehension. Through diagramming, illustration, 3D printing, and user testing, a product was made that highlights the ability of physical maps on campus to be informational in multiple sensory realms while accommodating vision to the highest degree.

This project was approached with pure design sensibilities. My personal views or feelings weren’t a factor in this project.
