Top-5 Commercial Signage Stressors And How to Prevent Them

Creative Sign Designs

While it may come as a shock, many firms often don’t see the value in proper signage for large commercial development projects, relegating it to a miscellaneous to-do list of minutiae. As such, it may not be done properly and, subsequently, the client doesn’t benefit from the value of extraordinary signage. When done correctly, signage does not only provide function but can also transform urban landscapes.

Here are some common potential oversights, issues, and obstacles that stem from not assigning enough – or any – value to proper, quality signage that, thankfully, all share one common solution: an experienced signage partner.

Sign Trends to Watch in 2019: Technology, Fabrication Materials & Process

Creative Sign Designs

While countless trends come and go, from fashion to music to yes, even signage, one thing remains constant: signage itself will always be ‘on trend.’ Why? Because just as with fashion – trends change but needs don’t – signage will always be necessary to help people know where they are and how to get to where they want to go.

So while we don’t have a crystal ball, it’s safe to say these are the trends in sign technology, fabrication materials, and processes to watch for in 2019 – and beyond.

The Role of Signage in Environmental Graphic Design

Creative Sign Designs

According to the Society for Experiential Graphic Design, Environmental Graphic Design (EGD) ‘embraces many design disciplines including graphic, architectural, interior, landscape, and industrial design, all concerned with the visual aspects of wayfinding, communicating identity and information, and shaping the idea of creating experiences that connect people to place.’ Simply put, environmental graphic design communicates the story of an environment with thoughtful, branded navigation solutions to link signage to the community it serves.

The Importance of a Master Plan in Wayfinding Signage Systems

As discussed previously, wayfinding encompasses all of the ways in which people orient themselves in physical space and navigate from place to place.  In addition, for large companies, educational campuses, operational facilities, hospitality industries, parking structures, and more, wayfinding master plans serve to help meet federal and state requirements for accessibility wayfinding infrastructure and emergency wayfinding infrastructure.

A Quick Guide to Commercial Signage Permits and Codes

Creative Sign Designs

As we’ve discussed previously, while designers focus on aesthetics, every signage project needs an operations team comprised of highly experienced permit specialists who review the municipal code library and have established relationships with city planners to expedite the approval process and ensure sign permits are secured in a timely fashion, providing clients with hassle-free permit acquisition.
