Viewing the Wayfinding Signs category, page 1
When we are looking for photographs to display on the site, we try to find signage that displays the more well-known aspects of each signage category; for example wayfinding signage that shows different locations and how to get there.
But there is also this kind of wayfinding signage, signs that display the location at the end of the arrows. This is one such sign, showing the room number and name, and in this particular case the university corporate logo.
Another information-packed bespoke signage that shows us what you can achieve with clear logos and simple colour changes.
There are two corporate logos on the sign, top left and bottom left, and then there is the main bits of information covering the right-hande side two-thirds.
In a sense this is also a wayfinding sign, showing where the main entrance is.
Variations of wayfinding signs. The sign above is very different from what you can usually expect from a wayfinding sign, which are like the picture below.
Just because you think of something in one way, doesn’t mean it gets done that way all the time!

Universities are a prime example of sites that need accurate and legible wayfinding signs, students, staff, and visitors all need to get to their destinations with the minimum of fuss.
The sign has been positioned in a very prominent location, and carefully placed by the fitters too, so as not to disturb existing flowerbeds.
As an anti-vandalism measure, an extra layer of vinyl has been added.

Many large buildings, and in this case a University, need extensive wayfinding signs to make sure people can get to their destination. Clear and concise these wayfinding signs need to be simple and easy to understand.
This style of directional sign is a type of wayfinding sign called a fingerpost. They are very good, when positioned correctly, at accurately directing someone to a location, more so than a traditional flat sign with a list of locations and arrows. It is however, used for places where there are less locations to direct to.

The picture belies the true size of this large wayfinding sign, created using 11g aluminium and large wide format printed vinyl pieces. These have clear vinyl anti-vandalism layers on top, serving a dual purpose: protection against vandalism and protection against the weather.
Colour coded to show the various sections of the wayfinding map, the map even has the ‘You are here’ clearly marked (many wayfinding maps show these quite tiny).
The sign is large enough to warrant four aluminiun posts, to make sure it stays in place in bad weather.

If you need to get people somewhere, then you need a wayfinding sign – the only thing is, there are SO many ways to make wayfinding signs!
This one is specific to a location, because the arrow points to a single place. The sign itself only labels a single place too, so it’s very bespoke.
The colour is a muted yellow, suitable for use indoors, and the writing is clear and legible, very easy to read for the vast majority of the population.
