There is a famous quote which is often seen on the internet. “According to research, 80% of advertisement is forgotten within 20 minutes”
In an age where humans have become busy and exist inside a world of advertisement, it is crucial for new businesses to deeply invest in signage industry.
The following article will help you design an effective sign. Just look out for following tips:
What Your Sign Is About?
A large contribution of an advertisement sign depends upon your line of work. What is the sign going to represent?
Is it about an eatery, a modelling agency, a construction company or some health organization? Think about the ways with which you can create an emotional bridge between the sign and its viewers.
Logo and Text
A sign is a small place, which is often equipped with two things:
A logo (picture)
A tagline (some words)
For this purpose, it is recommended to seek out a professional graphic designer and a content creator. You need your alpha game in both of these genres.
A good logo and a good tagline will sub-consciously make a bond with the minds of audience. A popular example is the “H” letter of Honda Company. Actually “H” is not a letter. It is a handshake between a customer and seller.
Try innovative ways to link your business with logos and wordplays.
The Place of Sign
The place directly and indirectly influences an audience. What type of people do you want to attract?
If it’s a high positioned signboard inside a shopping mall, it will receive a large contribution of curious eyes, eagerly looking at it for 24/7. And you will get to attract general sorts of people.
If your sign is placed on a hilly track, less people will view it as not everyone is fond of hills or likes to do hiking. Also, in general, you need to attract stereotypes. People who like hiking also love exercise, fitness and are mostly keen about their health.
People inside a shopping mall food court will be more interested in fashion, entertainment and gossips.
Attracting the desired type of audience is highly recommended.
There is a science of color scheme. The trick here is to select a color mixture, which will look distinct and appealing to eyes.
Your sign should be eye-capturing. Otherwise, how will people be able to differentiate it among other designs?
White text on black background offers maximum contrast. You can apply a mixture of lighter patterns on a dark background.
Experienced designers recommend a balanced sign. If your sign has too much extremities, it would be difficult to read it.
Be innovative but also ensure its eye appeal.
You have a limited space – use it wisely. Do not try to fit Rome inside your teeny tiny space. Put the maximum impact words and designated logo on your space.
No rulebook says to utilize all the space. But every rulebook does say to make your sign awe-inspiring into the eyes of your audience.
