Interpretive signage is more than delivering information; it enables the user to interpret and remember the location visited and the things learned. Interpretative signage educates and follows a narrative or a timeline and is likely to follow a natural sequence.
It is this sequence that needs to tie-in with the route and as such, the wayfinding design and planning. Interpretive signs are not in themselves directional or guidance signs, but the signs will very often follow a natural progression.
Exterior interpretive signs are used for the delivery of information about historic buildings, landscapes, places and objects of interest to the public.
Graphics and text on the panels should be eye-catching and informative, easy to read and offer an explanation of what the reader is seeing. Interpretation signage is widely used within museums, historic sites, parks and Local Authority Public Realm locations
isGroup’s Interpretation Signage can be made from a variety of materials, in keeping with the environment and surroundings.
With all the interpretation signs produced by isGroup, materials and construction methods are carefully selected to suit the individual requirements of the signage.
The selection of durable materials – able to withstand the challenges of the British weather – are:
• Printed panels that utilise UV-Inks and durable over laminates
• Toughened glass or polycarbonate to protect the non-fade graphics panels
These are then mounted to a wide variety of surfaces including metal and timber posts with wall mounted options also available.
IsGroup also offers assistance with the graphics and structural design of the signs and placement, managing the project on your behalf should it be required from initial design to installation.
