If you have a community or brick & mortar business, this usually is a sign. It can be a monument, flag, blade or building sign… but it is the first impression before your client enters your business. If you have an e-commerce site or a service business, you may not have a traditional sign but something visual will become your identity (It could be your website or your company vehicle). Your identity should state in a moment, who you are, what kind of business you operate and include a consistent logo with brand colors.
Consistency is always key in the Essential 6. Logo and colors should remain the same through every element. Your identity must be seen and recognized 24/7. So it should be illuminated for night and appropriate contrast should be considered during the day. In today’s world, an identity should easily be seen no matter what time of day. This often is your client’s first impression. So, it must be dynamic, enhanced with appropriate landscaping and not dated or in disrepair. Remember, your image will be judged on how your identity appears to the public. Ensure it always looks great… morning, noon, night and whatever season!
Check with your city or county as sign codes often change. Do you have the largest possible sign allowed? …Or does your competitor’s sign attract more attention because of its colors, size or illumination? Always know your codes so you can get the best identity or upgrade it for something more vibrant.
Here are a few Pointers!
