Lori Anderson of the International Sign Association on Wayfinding, Conspicuity, and Helping Communities Thrive
Through the Noise #169
Lori Anderson // President and CEO // International Sign Association
Lori Anderson, President and CEO of the International Sign Association joins us today to talk about the organization that “points the way for communities to thrive.” The International Sign Association is an organization whose work is crucial, omnipresent, and almost totally inconspicuous to the public. Though signs are an essential aspect of modern life — without which most of us would find ourselves lost almost constantly — their success is rarely noticed while failures become the fodder of internet memes. Ms. Anderson’s passion for way finding and signage is palpable and not to be missed. Bring your sense of curiosity and learn a little bit more about the curious world in which we all live
