Signage – Doing it right.

January 27, 2015

At Sovereign, we make a wide range of signs. Unfortunately (or fortunately dependent on how you look at it) we haven’t been involved in creating any of these brilliant signs.

Signage is incredibly important in pointing us in the direction we need to go, but in this instance, the location of your sign is also equally as important.

And of course, every sign needs to have all the essential information. In some instances though, it’s best not to tell the more secretive details.

Signage is also very handy at getting your most important message across, but make sure you read it through before production. Mancunian cats and dogs breathed a sigh of relief after realising the RSPCA was just trying to help them.

On the topic of grammar and punctuation, it’s really really important.

Sometimes a pun or a bit of humour is very well-received….

Just make sure it doesn’t go too far.

And if you use lights in your signage, we beg you to make sure you keep the lights working!

So to summarise, your sign needs:

-To be in the right location

-To display only necessary information

-To not lead to misinterpretation

-To use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation
