Signage and Wayfinding

Connecting People and Places

Davies Associates develops innovative environmental graphics that integrate with and enhance the architectural experience. Our interior and exterior signage and wayfinding programs are carefully crafted to reflect the unique character of each built environment, with clear visuals that aid in the optimal navigation of places and spaces.

Design Process

Our design process for signage and wayfinding projects includes programming of sign locations, message schedules, conceptual design, design development, detailed construction documents, specifications, and construction administration services through project close-out. We work with our clients, the project architect and the consultant team to ensure that there is close coordination between all disciplines throughout the design and implementation process. In addition, we interface with governmental agencies to interpret applicable signage regulations and facilitate the review and approval process as required. For applicable projects we also prepare signage master plans, retail tenant sign criteria and sign standards/guidelines for future signage implementation.
