Why Wayfinding Signage is an Important Part of Town and City Streets
Wayfinding signage is becoming an increasingly more common sight in towns and city centres. Designs that can stand out from urban environments yet blend in with modern architecture giving everyone a direction to discover something new or guide them along a familiar path.
Effective wayfinding systems have environmental social and economic benefits. Signage can inform pedestrians and cyclists about the availability of safe routes and convey information about distance. Wayfinding signs can also act as visual prompts to encourage people to walk or use more sustainable forms of transport and wayfinding signage may persuade people to explore urban areas, visit attractions and make use of local services such as shops and cinemas.
Comprehensive wayfinding systems often combine signage, maps, symbols, colours, and other communications. Increasingly, they integrate mobile applications, digital displays, and wireless technologies.
Beyond their directional functions, wayfinding systems can be used for creating a sense of place and showcasing an area’s unique history
