Is there a more multi-faceted form of visual communication than signage? A sign can inform, promote, direct, identify and honour. A sign can save a life. Some signs even transcend to become icons themselves. That’s why we believe signage sits at the top of the visual communications tree. You only have to look at the history of signage to see why; from its humble beginnings as paint on a wall and a carving in stone, to the birth of neon signage in the 20th century to today’s highly creative modern applications. Signage may have evolved, but its visual communications power remains as strong and relevant as ever.
