I stumbled upon a case study/navigation redesign for Palais des congres and it most certainly made me think. Navigation, and directories are often harder to design that would be expected, and to make the design look fluid, simple, seamless, and easy to put together is very hard to do. Each piece clearly follows a system, and is clean and easy to read. They also mimic the overall architecture of the building it is housed in. I especially like the icons they developed for different areas of the building (of course, the color scheme doesn’t hurt either), and the delineations that separate different pieces of information. This is a wonderful example of what design can do, while still being functional.
