Whether you're developing a new residential community or seeking a fresh look an existing residential community, it's important to choose the right entrance and wayfinding signage. When residents enter the community, the first thing they'll see is the entrance signage. By choosing the right entrance signage, you'll create a positive and lasting first impression that enhances the aesthetics of your residential community. So, what type of entrance signage should you choose?
Entrance signage is available in a variety of shapes. Here at Forsite, you can choose from over a dozen of shapes; or even work with our design team on a fully custom sign design. While the shape of entrance signage may sound insignificant, it plays a key role in their overall appearance. A good rule of thumb is to choose entrance signage that compliments or has a similar shape as other decorative signage used in the residential community.
In addition to the shape, consider the color of entrance signage and whether it matches the rest of the residential community's aesthetics. If the color of your entrance signage doesn't match the rest of the community, it will look awkward and unattractive. Therefore, you should stick with a similar color. Of course, you don't have to limit yourself to using entrance signage in a single color. You can include two or more colors in your residential community's entrance signage.
To further customize the appearance of your entrance signage, you may want to include a logo of the respective residential community on it. Without a logo, it won't reinforce the community's brand. You can order community signage with a custom logo on it, however, here at Forsite.
Different entrance signage systems are made of different materials. Since it's used outdoors, you should choose entrance signage made of a durable, weather-resistant material like aluminum. Failure to do so may result in the signage rusting, corroding or otherwise succumbing to the effects of Mother Nature.
#5) Reflective or Non-Reflective
Entrance signage is available in both reflective and non-reflective styles. Not surprisingly, reflective styles are more visible at nighttime because they reflect headlights. When drivers approach a reflective entrance sign at night, they'll see it more easily, which could reduce the risk of accidents.
Don't just choose the first entrance signage system you come across for your residential community. Take the time to choose the right signage system. By considering these five things, you'll be able to choose the perfect entrance signage for your residential community.
