Abhinav, Amlan (2014) Effective signage system. BTech thesis.



In this modern growing world, communication fills an important part of our life. Not only used to convey our feelings, communications also play a vital role in our day to day activities. One of them is “SIGNAGE SYSTEM”. These are visually oriented communication and information system consisting of maps, signs, arrows, colour coding systems, gestures, pictograms and different typographic elements. These generally differ from other methods of information because they are used typically as a guide for people’s passage through the physical world. Moreover being a system, it is a collection of correlated signs used with a coherent design and purpose for e.g.:- road signs on a highway, overhead signs in airport, signs of hospital and college, different department Signs in hospital or college. Thus understanding the importance of signage system, it is important that the coherency of the system should be intact and harnessed for better results. This is the motivating factor towards a world of effective signage system, where the signs of a particular system convey information with utmost ease and more over the coherency is maintained.
