Interior signage is just as important for your brand as exterior signage. When people enter your corporate office or business building, you want to appear professional and be clear on where they need to go and provide any other applicable information. Keep reading to understand the types of interior signage and factors to consider when choosing interior signs.
Types of Corporate Interior Signage
ADA Sign: by-law, there are certain signs you have to have in your business. According to the ADA law, bathroom signs, handicap signs, and braille signs are required within a business.
Dimensional Lettering: when you first walk into a business and see that large, 3D sign behind the reception desk, it’s usually a dimensional lettering sign. The aesthetically pleasing signs make a statement about your company and grab guests attention immediately.
Wall Plaques: plaques are used for a variety of things. Addresses, championship winner listings, etc. they sometimes include small, engraved metal plates.
Wayfinding: a directional or wayfinding sign ensures that your customers know how to get from point A to Z (and all potential points in between). It’s imperative that the sign is perfectly designed to be clear, concise, and accurate.
Directory Signage: directory signs help guests navigate what floor and/or suite they need to go to. These signs are merely quick guides and are not necessarily meant to be clear maps like wayfinding signs.
Photoluminescent: these signs provide interior direction so people know where to find exits and stairs. In case of a power outage, photoluminescent signs will stay lit, allowing people to find their way out and where staircases are located.
Important Factors to Consider When Choosing Interior Signage
Color: you want to choose a color that not only follows your brand but will stand out against the text and/or graphics on the sign as well.
Font: choosing fonts for your interior signage can be easy if you already have brand guidelines for your font choices. However, you want to choose something that is going to be legible and makes sense for the type of signage.
Content: signs should be informative, engaging, and easy-to-read right off the bat. The type of content your sign should include all depends on the type of sign you are creating. For example, a wayfinding sign should include a key, clearly labeled map, and directions if necessary.
Placement: where you place your sign is important. If you are wanting to create an ADA sign for a bathroom, of course, you would place the sign near a bathroom. You want to place your sign where it makes sense but also where it will grab people’s attention as they’re walking through your business so they know exactly where to go.
