TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE WAYFINDING SIGNS
Keep it simple: All of your wayfinding signage should be easy to read and understand. You should be able to glance at a wayfinding sign and know what it says and means within seconds.
Coordinate it: All of your wayfinding signage should be designed to work together. Here are some examples of what we mean:
Identification signage should tell you where you are so you can follow directional signs to where you want to navigate to.
Your directional signage should easily take you to where you are going and then your identification signage should tell you that you have arrived.
Your regulatory signs should keep you out of the areas where you are not allowed to go while you are following your directional signage.
Your informational signs in conjunction with your regulatory signs will guide your behavior while you are in the facility.
