Directional | Wayfinding
When you find yourself in an unfamiliar surrounding, what do you look for to help navigate your way through the area? Signs of course! These types of signs are called directional or wayfinding signs. Before these signs are installed, we start with a detailed site visit to determine proper signage locations to direct traffic flow. Next, we determine the proper sizing of each sign and ensure clear messaging to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your directional signage. Key locations in most buildings are hallways, stairways, and entrances. Common places that have a need for this would be hospitals, colleges, public centers, and any other area receiving a large amount of traffic that needs to be controlled.
Directional or wayfinding signage is commonly installed as a monument, post and panel, or flush mount building sign, depending on the application and visibility. In all three cases, the signage is installed where the accompanying content can easily be read and understood either from walking or driving traffic.
