Wayfinding programs can seem overwhelming. With so many components to consider, including destinations, routes, materials, ADA code, architecture, branding, and technology… many ask, “Where do we begin?” The most important aspects in any wayfinding project can be boiled down to three things: architecture, branding, and the people. That’s it. Everything else fits into one of those buckets.
One of the first things people recognize when approaching their destination will probably be its architectural features. Even if it’s an open outdoor space, there is probably something of a ‘Gateway’ feature, beacon, or landmark that confirms you have arrived. Once you’re inside the space, the design of pathways, visibility of vertical circulation such as stairs or elevators and long sight-lines all assist in the visitor’s ability to navigate the space. Floor and wall finishes, lighting, and technology integrations can also be helpful in creating a sense of ‘go this way’ or ‘nothing here to see’ feeling. Ceiling heights, intersections, sight-lines and are all considerations for where information is placed, what it looks like, and how people will interact with it.
Wayfinding is an extension of the brand by incorporating typography, color, and other branding attributes. In crowded cities, the exterior branding is especially important to clearly mark building boundaries or increase usage of a specific are of the space by drawing more attention to it. Well integrated branding helps the visitor to confirm they are in the right location and creates recognition of brand through consistency. Use of branding in Place making offers the opportunity to adapt the brand into a playful and imaginative manner, creating a unique interaction with the visitor and the brand.
The people that use the space are the focus of any wayfinding system. Their journey begins before they arrive at a sign. It most likely begins at home when they receive an invitation to an event, book travel itineraries, or makes a doctor’s appointment. They may use a website, their smart phone, or call a customer service line to get directions and plan their journey. Architecture and branding will be the first thing that greets them as they approach the destination. Only then do signs, static or digital depending on the variability of the content, provide them with directions on which way to go.
Information can be communicated in many different ways, including print, signs, or digital tools, but by understanding the environment they will be navigating, the needs of your audiences, and what formats will best communicate the information, the wayfinding strategy and design solution will be unique to the location and effective for its visitors.
So again we ask, “Where do we begin?” First, understand whom the visitors are and what types of tools they will need to plan on getting to the location. From there, building a system that is consistent in brand, nomenclature, and strategically placed information within the architecture, supported by printed materials, and digital resources will help them get to their destination.
Creating signage for your business, but don’t know where to start? Our experts at Quantum Sign Corp can create custom signage to help your business stand out. Read here our tips to creating a successful business sign.
A well-executed business sign is critical to making a good first impression on potential customers — and building brand awareness. Whether it’s a sign on the front of your business storefront, or a lawn sign advertising your services, having a clear and eye-catching business sign can draw people in.
The most effective signs are both informative and attention-grabbing. It’s important to think about not only what your sign says, but also how it looks and where your potential clients are likely to see it.
Here are some tips for what to include on your business’ sign, which colors and designs to choose, and where to position your business sign.
Basic Business Sign Information
A retail storefront should feature a clean, easy-to-read, well-lit, and well-maintained sign. Proper placement is also critical. There should be no obstructions from power lines, trees or other buildings.
Your business’ sign should include the following:
Color is a vital component of any effective business sign. Bold colors are the most visually appealing, as long as they complement one another. Text and background colors should contrast, making the text easier to read.
Readability is the first priority when it comes to the text on your sign. Are the words easy to read? A mix of upper- and lowercase letters is considered easier to read than words made up entirely of capital letters. Opt for a simple typeface over one that’s fancy or hard to read at a glance. Avoid using more than two different fonts. And, although it’s not always easy to do, the fewer words you use, the better.
A unique graphic also makes your business sign more memorable. This can be your business logo, an evocative photograph, or a drawing — something that’s both visually appealing and relates to your business, but which is understandable at a glance.
Size and Location
Where you place your sign is another crucial element. Outdoor signage should be large enough to be seen from some distance, but it should not require drivers to turn their heads to absorb. They should also be situated relatively close to the business’s actual location. Indoor signage for your retail store must be placed in the appropriate areas: Put sales signs near the sale items, customer service signs near the cash register or returns window, etc.
