What Are Wayfinding and Directional Signs?

Wayfinding signs help your customers and employees find their way through your corporate space and access the rooms and facilities contained within. Wayfinding signs, also known as directional signs, point to various locations inside or outside your space or event venue, such as restrooms, elevators, entrances and exits, staff only rooms, and other important business functions. Wayfinding signs need to be designed in such a way that they are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) if your business faces the general public on a regular basis. Not only do you have to consider wheelchair accessibility elements such as ramps, but your wayfinding signs need to meet ADA regulations. These include easy-to-read fonts, bright contrasting colors, braille for the visually impaired, and that your signs are readily visible and accessible. When implemented correctly, wayfinding signs can not only meet these criteria, but can adhere to your company’s branding, colors, and imagery as well.

The Numerous Benefits of Wayfinding Signage

Wayfinding signs are not only a necessity to maintain ADA compliance, but they allow for the experience of navigating your office, showroom, lobby, factory, warehouse, or interior space to be straightforward and simple for customers and employees alike. Well-designed and strategically installed wayfinding signs can go a long way to catch the attention of your clients. They directly lead your clients to the essential rooms and functions of your business, provide valuable information, and ensure that certain key features of your business are not hidden. Most importantly, wayfinding signage can create an impression in and of themselves, not just conveying necessary information with no style or branding opportunities.

Various Applications and Uses

Wayfinding signs are particularly necessary for hospitals, offices, retail stores, large event venues, or universities. But wayfinding signs are very versatile and can work in any atmosphere. Providing navigation in a creative and unique way, directional signage takes the stress out of navigating space without confusion.

Directional signs can be made of a variety of materials as well. As long as they serve the function of directing your customers or employees to the various parts of your space, they should take on a form that makes sense relative to their location. Acrylic, standoff signs, floor graphics, meter boards, and retractable banner pop-ups are some of the signage products to choose from when creating your directional signage.

Event-Specific Wayfinding and Directional Signage

Event directional signage is key for large-scale gatherings or any space when you want to funnel foot traffic in a certain direction. Directional signage can also point attendees and passersby towards your event and take the stress out of them wondering where they are going and if they accidentally pass key attractions. Wayfinding signs are not only great for events, but also storefronts, restaurants, sporting events, and corporate spaces. Wayfinding signage is extremely versatile and customizable for all inside events and venues.
