How to create informational signs
Information sign is a specific placard or poster which informs people about modes of usage, potential risks, purposes of the object, changes in course of business etc. Informational signs require high quality printing to preserve scannability and readability on the go. There are certain rules of how to make proper information signs.
How to make high quality informational signs
Information signs are used everywhere: in the streets, in the offices, at home, at schools and colleges. While some informational signs notify a person on proper behavior (as Smoking Area sign template) or purpose of certain premises (as Restroom sign template), others warn people against risks (as Under Construction sign template) or directing people during evacuation (as Exit sign template). No matter what type of information signs you need, the next code of rules will ensure high efficiency of the signs:
- Clear design - the less graphic elements there will be on the sign, the more readable and scannable it will be. It is recommended to use much of blank space among objects to ensure scannability on the go.
- Use contrast colors - information signs must be seen, read and understood on the go. Moreover they must be clear in despair and panic when a building is on fire, for example. High contrast will help to keep readability even in poor visibility.
- Do not overload the information signs with data - some informational signs do not need words at all as graphics communicates better. Human mind perceives graphics 60 000 faster than text.
- Use standard icons and images - information signs with standard icons will be scanned and read faster than new atypical symbols.
