The 5 most common design mistakes in signage

1. Multiple thoughts per slide

Your audience is sure to get confused and annoyed, with too many messages being displayed at once. Instead of cramming multiple event details onto one slide, limit messages to one idea.

2. Text overload

Too much text is a sure-fire way to get people to ignore your message. keep messages narrowed down to one sentence. You can break up longer thoughts into multiple slides.

3. No hierarchy

If the visual order of the content doesn't make any sense, your message will be lost. Make sure that the most important part of your message is the first thing your viewers see. Make sure your message gets consumed by making it the largest element on the slide, altering its color to be different than other text or even repeating it a few times.

4. Boring

Static, black text on a white background, no pictures, bland language...

5. Lack of supporting elements

Slides with just words or slides with just pictures will do nothing for communication. The best slides incorporate both text and images.

EXPRESSWAY SIGNS WANT YOUR FEEDBACK


"Hi EWS Team,

The signage at King Point was positioned and the 'opening' of the conserved site undertaken on Tuesday 14 October, under the guidance of Staff Sergeant (ret'd) Gordon Cameron, 93 years old, a veteran who landed on Horn Is with his colleagues 72 years earlier (to the day) to build and operate the anti-aircraft facilities. The families of several other vets were also present along with school children and local dignitaries: some 50 people. The accolades were flying. My sincere thanks for you contributions.

Sincerely, Gordon"
