Hong Kong is a densely populated area with a 1001 things to do and see. Finding some of these sights or simply getting around can be a challenge. Especially if one is lost in an area that consists of a lot of visual noise. Jason Kwan collaborated with nine other creatives and designers to design a wayfinding system for the Wan Chai district on the northern shore of Hong Kong island.

 “Tastewalk is a personalized wayfinding system for Wanchai. The unique project emphasizes ease of orientation and concise designation without compromising aesthetics.

Working in a group of nine, we aimed to raise users’ cultural awareness of the dynamic district with heritage so rich. The principle map comprises a concise outline of the district, peppered with exquisite and custom-made map icons to highlight popular landmarks and time-honored attractions, such as Lun Mun Restaurant, Hung Shing Temple and “Ding Ding” Hong Kong Tram.

To show the best of a city within pages is no easy work. We started with thorough and comprehensive research on Wanchai’s history, demography and culture for inspiration. The process was of immense help as we were coming up with the final design approach: one that promotes and preserves cultural heritage.”
