Wellington Branch Event - Signs say what?

Ever been asked to design a sign? Probably. Are you ready to respond? You should be!

We take signs for granted as they flash past us on the motorway, keep us safe at work or tell us we are in the wrong aisle in the supermarket.

Technical communicators should have more than a nodding acquaintance with signs – their design and their meaning. While few are chosen to design them in any detail, many are called to understand and follow them. We rely on signs all the time.

This won’t be sign school, just one journey starting with a particular request and ending with, well, signs! And some extrapolation, of course.

Join us for networking, nibbles, drinks, and a great speaker at Level 7 342 Lambton Quay.
