The Importance of Wayfinding Signs

Wayfinding signs inform us how we can get to a certain location in a certain area.  They can be found along major highways informing us of how to get to food, gas or lodging.  They can also be found within a city or town to show us how to get to a particular location such as the theatre or museum. 

These signs are important as they help us to find our way without getting lost.  Not all maps will have these types of locations labeled on them so the signs can be a big help in getting from place to place.

You want your signs to be large enough to be easily read and the placement needs to be appropriate in relation to the desired destination.

Locally we have done some wayfinding signage in the City of Syracuse.  These signs help people find different locations throughout the city.

They serve an important purpose and should be considered as a way to help people navigate.
