The importance of Wayfinding Signage
Wayfinding signage is a very important part of a buildings design and it should be something that a lot of time, thought and planning goes into. Architectural signs should be at the fore front of a buildings internal design plans. Without well planned wayfinding signage people will not be able to use a building appropriately and will become lost, confused and frustrated once inside. Wayfinding signage should be part of a company’s overall branding and should be consistent with exterior signs and logos to create a clear and consistent image.
Wayfinding signage is typically used in large corporate organisations, public buildings, hospitals, airports, schools, sports stadiums, universities, colleges, libraries, hotels and other places that have a lot of people coming through the doors.
Without the presence of well designed and concise wayfinding signage navigating your way around a building would be very stressful and would result in lots of wasted time. Imagine an airport or hospital without any wayfinding signage to direct people to where they need to be. It would be a nightmare and this helps you to understand how much we rely on architectural signs and the important role they serve.
Companies that plan design and create wayfinding signage and architectural signs will need to carry out site surveys of your building or buildings in order for them to be able to create effective wayfinding signage. They will need to understand the flow of the building, the layout and have a full design brief of what the architectural signs need to convey.
A professional company that specialises in designing and creating wayfinding signage will also be able to handle all planning issues with the local council on your behalf to ensure they agree to the signage you want to put in place. They will be able to create accurate drawings and photographs showing the plans for the wayfinding signage and bring the architectural signs to life in illustrative software so you can approve the plans before they are finalised.
