Your building, office, campus, interior, and other physical and environmental spaces are where your brand truly has a chance to come to life. Every business and organization is different. A college campus has needs that are different from a shopping center or an amusement park. From car dealers to government buildings, like courthouses and town centers, all have unique signage and custom business banners. Every organization (even most of the serious digital businesses) has places of operation; these places all need quality and personalized signage, banners, displays, wayfinding, and environmental graphics.
Signs, Banners, and Displays for Every Situation
Look around you as you go through a day and take note of how others are using their physical space (indoors and outdoors). Successful business branding tends to use simple banners, signs, and displays of all kinds.
The grocery store is where every visual trick in the book is deployed: personalized banners for business, floor graphics, end-cap displays, banners over checkout and delis, portable post signs, easel signs, wall graphics, hanging banners, entrance signs and kiosks, outdoor banners and advertising flags. Custom sign and banner companies all love grocery stores.
Have a Plan for Your Custom Business Signage
A business might have windows exposed along a city street. We’ve all seen banks on the ground level of a building with 3,4,5 or more windows that have a sequence of window banners or window clings and prints. And this is space the business already owns or leases. They should use it wisely.
Rotate graphics and promote specials. These are versatile spaces that customers and potential customers walk and drive by — sometimes many times in a day.
Think about all of the possible places to incorporate brand graphics, information, and advertising messaging. Think about how easy or difficult it is for someone to find you. Even with Google mapping us everywhere, it’s nice to get somewhere and see clearly where a destination like your business is. Even with digital mapping sending us blindly around — it’s nice when they get to your business or facility and the sign tells them “you’ve arrived.” You’re in the right place.
Consider the experience of visitors. If you’re a mall management team or a hospital, a visitor is likely to need some directions upon arrival. Where to go should be easy to figure out. If you can do that while branding, even better.
Once you’ve determined a plan for signage, banners, and graphics, it’s time to design them. But what makes a good banner or sign?
Simplicity, Clarity, and Consistency
From conservative to flashy, successful environmental branding of interiors and exteriors advertising honors three goals: Simplicity, Clarity, and Consistency.
Simplicity comes in many forms, but it starts with some basic brand guidelines. When it comes to big graphics like signs, banners, window graphics, and wall graphics, you don’t want to redesign every element from scratch whenever a new banner or sign is needed. Guidelines ensure that you can focus on the message knowing your brand is already built-in through brand templates, typography, colors, etc.
Simplicity helps messages come through clearly and without confusion. Once you have your core messages determined, you have some choices to make. What is the best way to extend your business branding message so it reaches employees, customers, and the community where a business is? If you have multiple locations, how can you get the most value of creating multiple units of a set of graphics?
