Way Finding Signs, Giving People the Information They Need

While there are a few types of wayfinding signs, they all play a key role in getting people where they need to go.  The four different types of wayfinding signs according to Ernest Dwight (2008) are Directional, Identifying, Informational and Regulatory.

Directional –

Nobody likes feeling like they don’t know where they are going. This sign type gives clear information to people about where they need to go. From students to customers make sure that people have a clear visual guide to where they are going, this can be done through symbols and labels throughout the building.




Imagine walking into a room and not knowing where you are at and if you’re in the right place…Identifying signs let people know exactly where they are at.


These signs are especially important so people know when your location is open. If this information isn’t displayed clearly your customers won’t know when to visit your business. These signs can be done showing the days and hours of the week that you will be open.


Regulatory signs are commonly used to let people know what is and what is not allowed. From customer only parking signs to a no parking zone sign. This information is important to convey.

So whether it is a school, restaurant, store or business make sure the information you are giving your customers is clear and they feel comfortable getting where they need to go.   These critical signs help large amounts of people pass through the areas with ease. When people feel at ease in your establishment they are much more likely to come back. Give us a call or click on the link below to get a quote today for your wayfinding signs.
