Sign Design Guidelines

Sign pollution runs rampant in today’s retail environments.

Developing a “sign system” that includes sign design guidelines is imperative to creating signs that customers will actually read.

Our skilled graphic artists can create a system specific to your store and brand that will define:

  • sign categories
  • types of signs
  • sizes of signs
  • font(s)
  • color(s)
  • layouts
  • substrates
  • sign holders
  • placement
  • types of installation

for every sign that goes up in your store.

Design templates will be created for each category of sign.

NOTE! A well-designed sign system actually serves to train your customers to quickly read and interpret all your messages.

Not sure you want to create a sign system just yet? Then try our Sign Audit service. Starting at $2500, one of our designers will take an inventory of all the signs that exist in your store, and identify the categories that should be kept. This is the first step in reducing sign pollution!

History Timelines/Award Celebration & Culture Walls

These walls are a great way to showcase your company’s history, awards, services, culture, etc., to visitors and prospective employees, via photos, articles, and 2-D/3-D memorabilia. They can feature significant milestones and reinforce your outstanding brand, mission, and values.

Not only is “a picture worth a thousand words,” so are illustrations! Provide a unique, artistic expression of your company’s brand, products, services or mascot with a purposeful illustration.

Here’s a sampling of illustrations we created to support businesses, send messages, lease vacant storefronts, increase sales, and bring smiles to those who see them! So, delight and surprise your customers, clients, and community with a customized illustration that people will remember and admire.

Signage Portfolio

“Retailworks provided us invaluable help on our new store project. From details about the paint colors to overarching guidelines about signage. Lyn and her team quickly and gracefully assisted us, streamlining a rather worthy process. It is safe to say that we wouldn’t have had such a great space without them.”
