Effective wayfinding signage enables visitors to maneuver around corporate spaces, find their way around a hospital, navigate the hallways of residential and hotel buildings, or explore a boutique. Eagle Master Signs designs, manufactures, and installs practical and aesthetically pleasing architectural wayfinding signage for buildings and spaces across all industries. Our compelling signage gives your target audience direction and makes it easy to navigate your business facility.
The Functionality of Wayfinding
Wayfinding signage is an excellent way to label interior and exterior spaces for easy navigation. Providing good direction can be the difference between a visitor appreciating the space that they are in or being confused and leaving, as appropriate signage creates a convenient, welcoming environment. Wayfinding also boosts the accessibility of your building, as ADA-compliant signage allows disabled visitors to have equal access and a clear understanding of a building’s regulations or instructions.
The Five Principles of Wayfinding
There are five core principles that must be exercised to create practical wayfinding:
- Creating an identity at the location
- Using neighborhood landmarks to provide orientation cues
- Creating well-structured paths
- Dividing regions and neighborhoods into differing visual character
- Using adequate and limited navigation choices to ensure the wayfinding is straightforward and easily understood
Eagle Master Signs’ wayfinding solutions are backed by more than three decades of experience designing and creating interactive and intuitive wayfinding solutions across many industries, such as corporate financial institutes, educational buildings, healthcare facilities, malls, and more. Our team of experts has the necessary knowledge and skill to create signage that guides visitors through large or small-scale establishments without confusion or frustration.
The Benefits of Wayfinding Signage Design
Wayfinding provides an organic guest and employee experience and yields a positive return on investment. Wayfinding signage reduces stress, accommodates visitors of all types, and elevates your brand’s story and identity in an attractive, integrated way. Wayfinding also promotes a safer environment, as it gives clear directions to exits in case of an emergency.
The Benefits of Architectural Directories
A successful directory will silently control and organize the flow of foot traffic. Buildings equipped with directories provide visitors with helpful guidance upon entry, which enables them to locate the person or place they are looking for without confusion or questions.
An architectural directory enhances your building’s environment and accessibility, allowing guests to find their way and discover other features within your facility that they otherwise may not have known about. Directories promote seamless interaction between a visitor and a business or facility.

The Importance of Design
Aesthetically pleasing directories impact visitors’ perception of their environment and their desire to explore the area or return. Wayfinding and directories possess a communication design that connects guests to an establishment using visual character and distinct identity. It’s very important that the information on directories be neat, meaning that all the lettering matches, all the indents and spacings match, and that there are no misalignments. Additionally, all signs within a business or facility must be coordinated to create a cohesive look that represents the brand.
