Effective wayfinding signage is a program of signs that equips people with the information they need to orient themselves and navigate from place to place within an interior physical space or outside environment.
Whether a large or small project, there are some basic steps you should follow:
Planning signs early allows you to integrate their look and placement into your overall design, outside and in. Advance review helps you identify how the space will be used by employees and visitors and provides a better understanding of how sign codes will affect your choices. As a result, you will be better equipped to troubleshoot wayfinding issues while still in the design phase. Ultimately, you can avoid costly changes that might occur after installation, and ensure that your occupancy permit will not be delayed for lack of proper signage.
The Americans with Disabilities Act specifies the use of Grade 2 Braille and raised lettering, the fonts and colors used, and the installation guidelines for signage identifying permanent rooms and spaces. Your People Signs representative can help you with the rules that apply to your project.
