Although signs are some of the most important elements of our daily life, they are also some of the most unappreciated components of our living. Yet with all their numerous use sand countless applications, signs are vital for our safety and comfort. We need them to inform and direct us and at the sametime they activate and vitalise our buildings, towns and cities.
A simple ‘exit’ sign can make the difference between life and death, while an elegant flashing rooftop sign can attract unexpected business. Life without signage can barely be imagined!
In the absence of proper way-finding and directional signs, shopping trips would be a huge confusion without retail signs, while road traffic would be endlessly chaotic without traffic signs. Simple navigation would be a nightmare. In the current times, no passenger terminal could be considered complete without detailed signage in place directing and controlling passenger movement and continually updating information using contemporary methods and electronic information boards.
Every now and then, new regulations and guidelines are being introduced and implementation is enforced for certain signs that regulates colour code, shape, size, fonts, reflectivity, material and so forth. Numerous factors and criteria are taken into account for its visibility, legibility, interpretation and visual message given in a short time. It is now mandatory for every moving vessel, whether flying high in the air or on the ground or sub-marine, to have safety and evacuation signs in self-luminous materials.
But quite apart from their practical use, signs are now being celebrated for their decorative effects.Imaginatively crafted, zestfully developed designs, fashioned to fit the aesthetics of their surroundings, generate appeal with sleek and lustrous looks but which yet are practical and affordable, are all increasingly becoming popular in demand.
These modern signs can no longer be considered passive as they have been transforming dull-looking edifices and previously drab urban areas into vibrancy, creating elegance in the work place and adding colours to townscapes. In our opinion, signs can now be considered part of the fashion industry, creating the ‘new sign culture’.
In olden times, sign-making was normally done by craftsman using simple hand tools and basic materials, but with the advent of technological development, the sign industry in general has rapidly been transforming more towards designer signs that employ high-tech machinery, highly skilled graphic designers and visualisers who come up with stunning designs that not only give the message but also generate an appeal for the user. Thus, the sign industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide, and the advancement in digital technology has by far been the biggest contributor to this development.
