A great Wayfinding System helps your customers, employees, patients, students and others get where they need to go with ease. Commonly know as Architectural Signs, these signs are comprised of Building Identification signs, Directional or Wayfinding signs, Directories, Department and Room Identification, and Informational signs. Used in combination, these signs allow users to find their way through a physical interior or exterior space with ease and are created to make a user friendly environment for visitors, patients, students or other users feel comfortable in your environment.
As you have probably noticed in your travel through our nations Parks and Recreational areas, the National Park Service has incorporated Architectural and Wayfinding signs that have similar colors, styling, fonts, logos, and information symbols. This is great example of Architectural signage for an outdoor facility. These colors, styles are are carried throughout the interiors of museums and park facilities in an effort to create a cohesive system.
The key to great architectural signage is to use quality materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, brick, granite and other natural high-end materials to create a long lasting high-end sign. Architectural signage is usually created as part of a Sign Program which includes coordinated designs and elements to create a cohesive and informative set of signs. Signs are generally similar in shape, color and style and are fabricated using high quality fabrication methods with no visible fasteners, seams, screws, etc.
Architectural signs can be indoor signage and or outdoor signage and a comprehensive sign program will bring the elements of both types of signs together to create a feel of continuity throughout the building(s) in which they belong.
