Workshop: Communicate with Graphic Symbols (in German)
For 4th
10th school year, secondary and vocational schools

In the exhibition we will explore how designers have approached the design of transport wayfinding and signage systems and company logos. We will then put our knowledge to use in the museum to think about how signs are read and designed. Where is the ticket desk, the cloakroom or the exit? Do we need graphic symbols to find our way around? In this workshop we will design our own icons and pictograms that everyone can take home as a sticker and use.
