Signage, at its best, has the power to grab attention immediately, convey a brand message, and even set the tone for what’s in store on the interior of a business. The capabilities of signage and what it can achieve when executed correctly is an important part of the branding process.
Signage and branding often go hand-in-hand. While some don’t take advantage of exterior signage, these companies did.
