The purpose of all signs is to help the user find their way to and from a destination and for the provider to make their building more user friendly whilst communicating a design and thought that reflects their caring attitude, and portraying an identity.
Signs are usually one of the first contacts a person has with an organisation and the initial impression they give can have a lasting effect, as it is in that all important first few seconds that ones opinion of an organisation or building is formed.
Signage forms only a very small percentage of the cost of a building, typically only 0.1%, but it does contribute greatly to the aesthetics and first impressions of a building. It also increases peoples awareness of their surroundings and aids orientation around the structure. Spending on a well designed sign system can therefore be very beneficial to all concerned.
