Daria Shmitko Exhibits The Tactile Supports For Wayfinding Maps

Daria Shmitko, the lead designer of the highlighted design Tactile Supports for Wayfinding by Daria Shmitko says, The bachelor thesis (ISIA Urbino, supervisor: Luciano Perondi) investigates the problem of accessibility within the graphical representation of space and takes the form of a tactile artefact accessible to the blind and visually impaired. The goal is to make the geography of an area available both in economic as well as content terms, thanks to the combination of a low-cost printing technique and a specific representative approach. The project consists of a set of tactile maps and a research programme that documents the design process and the first phase of testing with blind people..
