Sammanfattning: Form language - a language for all of us? is a thesis in information design with a focus on spatial design. The purpose of this thesis is to develop a design proposition that exemplifies how the form language can be used to guide museum visitors, thus promoting the flow of movement and information retrieval. The work is based on the thematic exhibition Framtidsland at Arbetets museum in Norrköping. This thesis is a small part of a major survey to find out how spatial information affects visitors' flow of movements in thematic exhibitions. The overall information design problem includes motion flow and navigation in exhibition environments. Many thematic exhibitions do not communicate how the visitor should relocate and lacks clarity in structure and implementation. With the support of acquired empirical information from an informant interview, expert interview and a three-way site analysis on Framtidsland, the existing problems have been identified. The basic issues in the exhibition include ambiguous spatial information and guidance, which complicates the flow of movement and information retrieval for the visitor. There is a need for clearer guidance, structure, a line of argument and a coherent form language. Based on theory of wayfinding/wayshowing, cognition, design rules and design principles, combined with results from a user test, a design proposition has been developed. The design proposition shows that form language is a language for all of us, and that it affects us more than we think. This study shows that spatial information can contain guiding design and visual balance to create better structure as well as facilitate movement flow for visitors in thematic exhibitions.
