Wayfinding signs provide directions to points of interest. Good wayfinding signs are:
Readable ~ The most common disability is poor vision. Font size and style, contrast between text and background, lighting conditions, and road speed are all important considerations.
Understandable ~ Provide clear directions using standard directional arrows and icons that have been tested for visibility and wide recognition, so even non-English speakers can interpret the signs.
Attractive ~ Signs must be aesthetically pleasing, and the total design (shape, colors, and post or structure if possible) should reflect the history and culture of the community.
