Lighting Conditions in Your Area Affect Sign Visibility

Running an architecture or design business isn't simple. You have to carefully craft your client's vision with your design aesthetic, and ensure every project represents the goals of your business. Choosing signage for your business is also full of decisions. One of the most important parts of choosing an outdoor sign for your business is ensuring changing light conditions doesn't ruin the impact of your sign.

Before you install an outdoor sign you need to plan for changing light conditions including:

Ambient lighting 

What other light sources are near your sign? Street lights? Other signs? The setting sun?

Sign Cost Considerations

Fade resistant materials

Which materials are best for your sign? Investigate the amount of direct sunlight your sign will receive and adjust your materials accordingly to avoid fading. 

Shiny surfaces

Do you want to include shiny surface materials? How will the sun and other lighting reflect off of these materials?

As we are creating outdoor signage for architects and designers, we pay careful attention to:

Existing branding

Your business' existing branding is used to choose a design, sign materials, and how the sign will fit into your strategic marketing plan. We want customers to see the sign and instantly recognize your business. 

Local regulations

Outdoor sign design is often at the mercy of local sign ordinances. Before we construct any outdoor sign we carefully review the local regulations to make sure your sign is aligned with these codes. 

Durable materials

An outdoor sign often faces the worst weather. Your outdoor sign materials should hold up to the weather and last for years. We'll help you choose materials that you can trust will last.
