The eventual objective of any signage project is to achieve a personalized, branded appearance while improving the shape and function of a place… However, with so many indicators to examine, there are times when it is vital to simplify the procedure.
You can simplify the entire process, from idea generation to execution, by using a sign system – essentially a blueprint – that streamlines your custom interior logos solution, with expert consideration paid to the variations of ADA, wayfinding, and décor to ensure you get your signs right the first time.
And it all begins with conformity.
Ada and tactile signage responsibilities understanding
According to the us department of justice’s civil rights division, the ADA is intended for those who have physical or mental disabilities that ‘…significantly impede one or more main living activities.’
As a result, ADA signs make it easier for people with visual or other sensory limitations to find and read them, whether visually or by braille or another tactile contact. Federal law requires that all public buildings and spaces maintain correct, up-to-date ADA signage throughout their facilities, so there is a lot to consider when it comes to ADA signage standards.
The divine signage and graphics team is well-versed in these standards and can create unique, ADA-compliant interior signs that are both beautiful and on-brand. When installing ADA-compliant interior signs, keep the following things in mind:
Color: Words and characters must stand out against the sign’s backdrop color.
Typeface: All text must be in a sans serif typeface. Only in permanent rooms should the typography be in full capital letters.
Content: Permanent room signage must be in braille and must be rounded rather than square. Pictogram signs must be placed on at least a six-inch-high backdrop.
Placement: Depending on the kind of door, sign placement should be closest to where someone would glance or reach to open the door.
Considerations for wayfinding and interior signage
Signs, maps, arrows, color-coding systems, pictograms, and other typographic components are often used in commercial building interior signage. Beyond ADA regulations, there are several concerns and signals that developers, general contractors, architects, designers, property managers, and others must prepare for. Planning for signs may be difficult and complicated when it is not their area of expertise.
Because, in addition to ada issues, interior signage and wayfinding must be informative, directional, identifying branding, and regulatory – all in the right place, at the right time.
