We are Design for Movement, a multi-disciplinary global design team within Steer Davies Gleave. The core areas that define our work are information, environment and identity. This is our portfolio of selected projects.

Toronto Parks

Toronto Parks

Client: City of Toronto, Canada
Facilitation partner: Swerhun, Canada
Year: 2013 – Ongoing

Following on from our successful delivery of Toronto City's TO360 wayfinding strategy we were appointed by the City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry & Recreation team to deliver an ambitious project aimed at improving wayfinding across the City’s 1600+ parklands. 

The Toronto Parks & Trails Wayfinding project is being undertaken in two phases. Phase One completed in 2014, created the wayfinding system framework and includes system principles, general style and design guidelines, and an implementation strategy. The framework provides the necessary tools and approach for Phase Two – design and pilot implementation. Phase Two began in January 2015, and implementation is expected to be complete in summer 2017.

With over 1,600 parks and green spaces modularity and scalability were key to the development of the product and information system design. The use of the TO360 base map as the primary map output for parks is at the core of the information system. By adapting this base map to  the differing needs and focus of the parklands we have been able to provide seamless integration between the urban and parks environments. .
