All business owners have signs placed around their businesses. These signs may be for publicity or marketing. But there’s another factor to consider when designing signs for business purposes - inclusive signs. In this article, we’ll be discussing inclusive signs and their guiding designs.
Americans with Disability Act (ADA) signs include braille signs, ADA compliant signs, and engraved signs. These signs are conveniently located and easy to read or touch according to the ADA. Although they have been a part of sign designs for a long time now, they are the front-runner in inclusive signs everywhere. ADA signs can be included in
- Wayfinding and Directional signs
- LED Signs
- Interior Signs
Color conscious signs are a step forward in displaying signs that are viewable, accessible and easy to locate. There are certain design requirements to adhere to that covers the inclusive clause in color-conscious signs. They are:
- Good contrast between signboard and background
- For color-coded signs, use colors that are easy to differentiate
- Signs should have a matte or satin finish. Avoid shiny and reflective surfaces to prevent glare.
- Signs should be evenly illuminated, with a lighting level of 200 lux.
