THE ROLE OF SIGNAGE WITHIN ARCHITECTURE

A well designed wayfinding scheme enhances people’s experience of a building, and plays a vital role in enabling accessibility for people with physical or visual impairment.

(Please take a look at our Wayfinding and Braille/Tactile  signage solutions for further information.)

Professional architectural signage:

• brings brand recognition into the built environment.
• clearly identifies building and location identities.
• provides landmark clarity to the boundary and gives a sense of arrival.
• provides simple, clear navigation to all users.
• delivers the right information, to the right people, at the right time.

COLLABORATION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

GB Signs work with architects, designers and construction companies, taking a collaborative approach to delivery of architectural signage projects.

Our goal is to ensure every project runs smoothly from concept to completion and to fully understand the brief, achieve all objectives, meet every deadline and leave our clients with expectations exceeded.

Every project is unique. Each development has a unique architectural vision and every built environment has its own set of functional, informative and branding objectives.

Taking architectural design intent, brand objectives and on-the-ground practicalities, turning them into realistic, deliverable, efficient and effective signage solutions no matter how complex the brief – this is what makes us so successful in delivering effective signage solutions for our clients.

APPROACH TO ARCHITECTURAL SIGNAGE PROJECTS

Our technical and graphic designers understand manufacturing possibilities and our combined experience, creativity, attention to detail and production capability allow us to create signage systems that are both beyond the norm and genuinely deliverable.
