Miami Int'l Creates Universal Signage for International Travelers by Greg Gerber (: May-June, 2009), 12 Sept 2009 [cached]
Joe Labozan, president of Labozan Associates, helped write Miami International's wayfinding plan when he worked at Carter & Burgess. "Our goal in developing the plan was to ensure that travelers in the South Terminal enjoyed the same experience as those in the North Terminal," says Labozan. "We sought to bring logic and order to the way people navigate."
In creating the plan, Labozan tried to connect two pieces of a giant puzzle.
"The Miami airport had standards they didn't want to abandon, such as using Helvetica typefaces and black and white lettering," states Labozan.

With that in mind, they hired Joseph Labozan, a nationally recognized wayfinding expert.
Labozan met with residents and officials and recently came back with preliminary sign designs. Labozan is from out of town and it showed - his design centered around a maple leaf, the nickname of Seaholm High School.
Labozan said he included the maple leaf because the city has a tree on its logo. He also said his original choice was an oak leaf, but feedback from previous meetings led to the switch. He said the focus shouldn't be leaf choice, but the overall program.
"Enough said," he said. "You don't like it, so we will move on to something else."
Labozan, vice president of Carter & Burgess, has designed sign systems for big cities, major airports and small communities like Birmingham.
He showed plans for stand-alone kiosks, neighborhood signs and other directional and informational signs. Some 20 to 30 kiosks would be located around the city directing people to landmarks and places of interest. They could be high-tech with plasma screens or basic in design, he said.
A small group of people turned out to see the proposed signs and most liked the concept for neighborhood signs. It would require new street signs even though the city recently installed new street signs in many parts of town.
Officials asked Labozan to add city golf courses to the list of places that should have special directional signs.
Labozan was critical of the subdued nature of "Birmingham Green" and said a lighter shade would make the signs more readable. He is expected to redesign the signs sans the maple leaf and come back before the planning board.

"The premise for using environmental graphics to aid in wayfinding comes from the fact that every trip is unique," says Joe Labozan, associate principal with Carter & Burgess' Environmental Graphics team.
Intuitive circulation factors are being utilized whenever possible, says Labozan.
