Frequently asked questions
Can you explain the project process?
Every project is different and requires a fresh approach and forward-thinking solution. Following the initial briefing and site visit, we develop the concept, conduct a site and technical survey, design and prototype the signage. When it’s ready, we supply proof for approval before manufacture in-house. We carefully mark out each site and our team install the signage in position. We can also maintain and refresh signage at any point in its life.
Do you work with wayfinding consultants?
Yes, we work with lots of different signage specifiers and these include wayfinding consultants, as well as architects, construction companies, property development companies, designers and other organisations direct. If you’d like technical advice to bring your designs to life, we’d love to share our architectural signage and wayfinding expertise.
Is your wayfinding signage suitable for the visually impaired?
Yes – we can incorporate elements like over-sized text, colour coding and braille for the visually impaired in public and private sector environments.
Have you won any awards for wayfinding?
Our project for Here East with dn&co was awarded a Merit Award in the prestigious SEGD Global Design Awards 2018 for wayfinding.
Does Reade Signs provide project management?
Yes, we provide full project management to liaise with suppliers and stakeholders on your behalf. We take the project management headache away. We listen, understand, create and implement bespoke wayfinding programmes that lead people through a building or open space.
Can wayfinding support my branding? Yes, intelligent wayfinding can reinforce a brand. Signage plays a fundamental role in translating a brand and connecting people to the built environment. Tourist finger posts, beautiful finials, materials that reflect the surroundings and careful colour matching for brand consistency on different materials all help to make wayfinding an intrinsic part of the overall brand within the building or area.
