Wayfinding signage and Planning Services aka Directional Sign Systems

Wayfinding provides a methodology for people to find their way (hence "wayfinding") to and around a destination. By gaining an understanding of a place, who its users are, and what they need to find, wayfinding planners develop a signage master plan that guides people through a facility. This process includes defining functions of various signs, and the specific message and location of each sign. These are typically compiled into sign message schedules and locator maps. Regardless of the type of facility for which the wayfinding planning is being done, certain basic principles such as legibility, prioritization of messages and amount of information that can be comprehended apply. The Sign Studio's experience in a broad variety of project types can be a valuable resource in these regards.

Los Angeles Signs | All you need to know about SIGNS..........

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Mon, Oct 24, 2011 @ 06:10 AM

All you need to know about signs………

Signs are seen throughout the world in the form of corporate names on the side of buildings, traffic signs, office signs, lobby signs and way finding signs (the directional signs that point people in the right direction).   Custom signage makes the first impression for the place of business, and can indicate a type of business a person is about to engage with. What would we do without signs? 

An eye-catching office sign may get a consumer to stop in. A colorful and vibrant lobby sign in a dentist’s office may change a person’s mood, while a well-done way finding sign can alleviate a lot of confusion. The value is also showcased highly in corporate branding due to the fact that sign recognition is important for repeat business or customers, and helps with the promotion of a product or service.   For a wide example of custom signs for your business, please visit The  Sign Studio at  and fill in the quote form to start your next project!

Burbank Signs | Evacuation Maps, Plans and Wayfinding Signs

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 @ 10:01 AM

Evacuation Maps & Plans
Building evacuation plans, fire evacuation maps and emergency exit signs are essential to meet fire and building code requirements. The Sign Studio provides custom building evacuation maps and specialty signs. Building evacuation maps are carefully designed to meet all client and fire code requirements. Our exit signs and exit path marking systems are manufactured custom to your liking. Our building evacuation plans, stairtreads and path marking systems provide clear direction to exits and offer vital egress information and indicate the location of fire and safety equipment available.

Fire Evacuation Plans and Evacuation Diagrams
Public and commercial buildings (with 10 or more employees) are required by law to have an emergency action plan. An emergency action plan (EAP) details the actions employees and building occupants must take in the event of a crisis. The fire plan is a component of the EAP which emphasizes in-house fire safety protocols and procedures. The fire evacuation plan must include a schematic of the facility that details egress routes to fire exits, safety equipment locations, post evacuation assembly areas and other pertinent information. As a public safety measure, the authority having jurisdiction (Fire Marshal) requires that evacuation plans be posted for the building occupant.

What Are the Codes and Standards?
Much has been written into fire codes and occupational safety regulations about the necessity of posting fire evacuation diagrams. They are required by law in most facilities. Yet visit any number of buildings with posted fire evacuation signs and you will find as many different sign designs as there are buildings. With the absence of a nationally recognized standard to guide facility managers and sign designers with evacuation map development, we have to ask ourselves whether all building evacuation signs are equally effective? Can diagram size, color, floor plan orientation, text or icon styles affect viewer response during an emergency.

Our expert designers at The Sign Studio will design and prepare your layouts and work closely with you to create effective and proper Evacuation Maps and Signs for your needs. For more information or if you have any questions, please call us (818) 843-9200 or e-mail us at
