Signage

For many of us, the signs we display on our premises reflect the corporate look of our business but there is much more to a good sign than its looks!

When considering signage for your building, remember the following:

  • signs need to be simple, short and easily understood
  • signs also need to be consistent
  • use a mix of upper and lower case lettering
  • use a sans serif font like Arial
  • contrast the text colour with the sign background colour
  • contrast the sign with its surroundings
  • use matt surfaces for signs – avoid surfaces that cause reflective glare
  • use appropriate font sizes for different types of signs
  • place signs in logical positions at appropriate heights
  • use symbols as well as words
  • use tactile signs appropriately
