Martin Foessleitner is an Information Designer living in Vienna. As he undertakes all his daily errands on foot, he knows his neighbourhood intimately. However, Vienna isn’t just for residents, it attracts day trippers and is an international tourist destination. Andrew Stuck walked with Martin through the centre of the city on a sunny October day as he explained to me how he came to design the city’s way marking system and how when providing information to those on foot, less is more.

“Universal design in a new attitude: understood as a right on privacy, access to public spaces and participation in social life for everyone in any situation, a basic design principle assisted by invisible serving technology, we are fascinated by combining analog maps with augmented reality functions.”
