Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) wanted
both traditional digital signage and interactive wayfinding
in a single design for 13 displays and one video wall
placed throughout the five core buildings near main
entrances. The objective was to provide daily
announcements with an option for interactive wayfinding
to save time and effort for students and visitors, as well
as alleviating the burden on their information desk.
The messaging signage layout shows content created
using custom branded elements. The wayfinding allows
users to view a campus map and touch five buildings to
view interior floor plans. Users can look up rooms and
events that span the entire campus. If a room is located
within one of the five core buildings, interior floor maps
appear with an animated icon on the destination room. If
the room is in another location, the campus map appears
with an animated icon on the destination building.
Students can select the class schedule button to view
current and future schedules – they enter their unique
7-digit ID to view a schedule and then map to the room
or building. All data pulls from WITCC’s SQL server, which
provides them an easy way to update information.
Custom screen layouts and message backgrounds for
announcements, as well as every design element of the
wayfinding (map, icons, navigation, etc.) were designed
to work in concert with each other. Colors, icons,
typography and overall design were coordinated to
complement WITCC’s established identity while providing
good contrast and visibility on large screens, as well as
blending well with the interior design. The interactive hot
spot allows the switch to wayfinding without intruding on
the traditional signage presentation. Interactive controls
placed at the bottom of the screen were incorporated to
provide access based on ADA guidelines.
