What’s Your Sign?

Every project is different because of the number one rule of real estate: location, location, location. It’s the same with signs.

Depending on the location, you may have a variety of different restrictions or available options. Banners, billboards, digital signs, and more, too many choices can end up confusing you about what it is that you’re trying to accomplish.

It’s best practice to first find out what function you’re trying to fulfill with the sign, and whether the company you choose can produce it.

There’s a Sign for That

Hospital Wayfinding BrandingAs you might expect, there are a few different categories of signage you can choose to implement. Different categories of signs and their functions include:

• Outdoor
• Indoor
• Portable
• Information-provision
• Persuasion
• Safety and regulatory
• Identification
• Navigation or direction

The general categories of outdoor, indoor, and portable signage include the ones that follow.

Information-provision signs have the purpose of conveying information, like paragraphs of text about a museum piece. At a retail store, it could be price labels or brief product descriptions.

Direction signs tell people where to go and could be signs like traffic signs to floor stickers. They can be complex or simple, depending on their use case.

Identification signs are often used in conjunction with information and direction signs, as they’re usually the destination. Examples of identification signs could be restroom signs in an airport or aisle numbers in a grocery store.

Persuasion signs are the most abstract of the categories. They are the type you’re likely most familiar with and include product advertisement or brand-building content. Persuasion signs persuade you to favor a product, brand, political candidate, person, or thing over other choices.
