Applied Information Group
Legible London

Their entry 'Legible London' is a new pedestrian wayfinding system to help people walk around the Capital.

Legible London maps are a prototype design for a world-class pedestrian wayfinding system, commissioned by Transport for London and due for London-wide rollout in on-street signs by 2015. 43 are currently installed in the West End.
The judges felt that through providing modern design alongside simple, yet effective cartography AIG had managed to produce a product using OS MasterMap that is easy to use, fit for purpose and visually striking.
