Project Description

Custom Wayfinding & Identity Systems

We build custom wayfinding and identity sign solutions through client collaboration, with long term focus on management and maintenance programs.

Designs for the Toughest Wayfinding Environments

Our custom approach results in a complete sign family that combines modular efficiency with unique attributes. We also develop planning and design guidelines that help guide ongoing efforts. We have applied this methodology our initiatives including:

  • A selection of modular signs and displays that can be customized to the institution

  • Custom fabrication capability ranging from signs, displays, donor recognition and even complete environments

  • A digital sign management system that allows for easy collaboration from initial planning to ongoing maintenance

  • Guidelines and purchasing systems that make ongoing brand management easy

  • An in-house installation team that responds quickly and can even guide installation by outside vendors and in-house staff

All of our wayfinding and identity sign solutions are scalable from small jobs to thousands of signs.

Our Latest Insights on Wayfinding & Identity Systems

Sign Maintenance Program Increases Sign Longevity

Your signage is an investment worth protecting. Signs serve as guides, greetings and information providers to your guests. Without them you may leave a first impression that can’t be repaired.

Sign Changeability Guiding the IDS Philosophy

IDS has built its entire philosophy and business structure around changeability in signs. From our modular products to our documentation methodologies, change plays a central role in what we do.
