About Wayfinding Signage
Wayfinding encompasses different types of signage, such as:
- Directional signs. These signs point the way. They can be simple or complex, and usually appear along a route, leading the person to a particular place. Directional signs help you guide visitors and vehicles through your facility while reinforcing your brand identity.
- Identification signs. These signs identify a specific location. They may clarify the name of a building, and often include eye-catching monument signs that mark entrances to corporate centers, shopping centers, hospitals and sports complexes.
- Informational signs. These signs provide useful information to visitors, such as hours of operation, safety hazards, historical facts, the location of building occupants, whether Wi-Fi is available, and so on. Included in this category are museum signage and donor recognition signs.
- Regulatory signs. These signs tell visitors what they can and cannot do in a location. They are primarily for safety, informing people about rules and restrictions, such as parking, speed limits and smoking policies. This category includes OSHA and ADA regulatory signs.
When the design is well-executed, wayfinding helps people easily get to and from their intended destinations without really noticing how they did it.
