Signage has become very necessary thing everywhere. People are inhabiting even the remote areas which word previously uninhabited by anyone. Because of this fact, the remote areas are being turned into approachable areas. People are commercializing them and making stores, food chains, parks and other amusement places almost everywhere.
Signage is crucial even within parks because we cannot leave people in a maze. But it also does not mean that we will take away the natural beauty of those areas by creating non-blending signage. This is simply not an option.
If you are looking for ways to make your signage blend well with nature, here are some ideas which can help you out.
1. The Materials
Choosing the right material is the very first step towards making a signage that is in harmony with the natural background. It is obvious that using steel or any metal will not blend well with nature. Because these are the two things which do not grow in nature. If you are making signage for a park, go for natural materials such as wood. You can also use a stone if you want. These two are not very expensive materials to be used in Signage and they will blend in with the park.
2. The Texture
The texture of your signage can also help be in harmony with nature. You must have noticed that tree trunks are not smooth or shiny. They are always very rigid and uneven. You can benefit from this characteristic to get an idea for your signage. For example, smoothly textured signage will not appear natural. Whereas a roughly cut wooden Signage will be very close and symmetrical to nature. Every sign can be different from one another rather than looking same. It will add to the natural look of your signage.
3. The Colors
The right choice of colors is very crucial for your signs. They can either make a successful natural sign or a complete disaster. It all depends on which colors you use. If the background is a park, look for the colors which are present in a park. For example, you wouldn't see bright red or blue colors in it. Whereas a park will have shades of green and brown, which you can use in your signs.
Colors have different effects on people. For example, the yellow color is known to change the mood of a person. And red is a color of romance, but it is also a very intense color which might make people uncomfortable. The green color has very positive energy and can create a positive effect on people. That is why it is very common in different signs. You can simply make a wooden signage and use the color white for letters. White also has a very positive effect on people because it gives a sense of innocence and purity. It is not uncomfortable for the eyes as well.
If you want your signs to mix with nature, you have to select similar shades of colors which are present in nature.
