So what exactly is Architectural Signage?

What is Architectural Signage?

Architectural signage represents any bespoke sign and sign solutions that strengthen a corporate brand, visually aid wayfinding and enhance the built environment. An architectural sign is often detailed in construction and professionally manufactured, using either traditional or state of the art technologies and quality materials.

An architectural sign is not just a sign. There’s an artistry in its making, conceptualised from the design brief, applied with intelligent engineering and a considered choice of materials to marry brand with building, turning 2D ideas into breathtaking 3D reality.

What differentiates an architectural sign? In essence, the devil is in the detail, quality materials, hidden fixings and built for longevity. Architectural signs are meant to last and importantly work as hard as you by integrating your brand with the professional communication of your business or organisation.

An architectural sign can be made of any material.
