Designing Signs for Outdoor Spaces: Tips and Best Practices

When it comes to creating a sign for your business, it’s not just about having an eye-catching design that stands out. At Twilight Signs, we understand the importance of considering the location and environment of your sign to create a visually appealing sign that also enhances the overall appearance of the space.

1. Choose durable materials: Outdoor signs are exposed to the elements and need to withstand wind, rain, and sun exposure. You don’t have to worry about that this sort of stuff when you work with us. We know what works.

2. Use lighting effectively: Illuminated signs can be highly effective in attracting attention and making your business stand out. We know the value of LED lighting and how to use it effectively. You need to consider the location and want to avoid ‘hot spots’. Our experts know lighting.

3. Consider visibility: Outdoor signs need to be visible from a distance, so we make sure your design uses bold, high-contrast colours and a font that is easy to read. Additionally, we consider the size of your sign in relation to the viewing distance – a larger sign may be necessary if you want it to be visible from a distance.

4. Keep it simple: Outdoor signs should convey your message clearly and simply and not overwhelm the viewer with too much information. We know to keep the text concise, on brand and use images or graphics to be impactful. It’s important to find the right balance! Check out our Exterior Branded Spaces page for examples.
