ABOUT







Jane Doggett

Graphic designer and wayfinding system pioneer, b. Nashville, TN, 1929, who lives in Jupiter Beach, FL. At Yale University, she obtained an MFA in architecture and design, studying with two influential professors, architect Louis Kahn and Bauhaus guru Josef Albers. Albers had a profound effect on Doggett and her use of color, which she would apply in her wayfinding solutions for about 40 airports. For some of them, she designed special typefaces. For example, for Tampa's airport, she modified Helvetica in her Alphabet A in the early 1970s. Interview by Lennie Bennett, Tampa Bay Times.
