The V&A says: “Our present solution is based upon, but not limited to, employing print, human and digital elements in achieving a level of visitor communication and inspiring exploration of the museum.”
It says it is looking to replace this with a “holistic solution to visitor navigation and wayfinding across a number of complicated buildings and spaces”. It is hoped that the new wayfinding will launch within the next five years.
The V&A is seeking a wayfinding designer to work on the project, who will be tasked with creating a “strategic vision” for the system, developing practical elements and delivering and maintaining the project.
The appointed consultancy will be tasked with developing existing elements of the V&A wayfinding across print, human and digital touchpoints.
The appointment will initially be for a three-year period, with the option to extend for another two years.
The deadline for applications is 26 February. For more information and to apply, visit ted.europa.eu.
