Local Knowledge Worldwide Experience
Testimony to the value of our service is the fact that so many clients have been long-term partners over many decades. In turn, their clients and customers have remained loyal to them.
Reliable Information! What’s the big deal?
Reliable Information is the cornerstone of any business and particularly the travel business – whether that be in a guidebook, a travel brochure or a wayfinding system on a transit network. Maps, timetables, local area maps, exits, signposts – whatever it is, spending time making sure it works for your customers will pay big dividends.
Robin has personally seen the best and, shall we say, the not quite so good, in his travels. He has been able to provide the best practices to his clients and thereby to their clients. Information that works.
In fact, working with scientists from VISUS at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, in a year–long study, we have been able to prove that his transit map designs work in actual practice. We invite you to download our joint paper: Reading Strategies for Metro Maps: An Eye Tracking Study from the scientific section of this website or directly from here.
Ensure the travel information you give your customers is the one that works. First time. Every time. Help them get the most from your products and services by engaging Robin in a first review.
