A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words With Custom Graphic Signs

10-16-2016

Unique images, the choice of an original shape and style, or even the addition of flowing lines to a sign adds to the look and the visual appeal for a restaurant, business or retail outlet.

The specifics of the sign have to be carefully considered, which is where our expert graphic team at Dave's Signs becomes so important. Our designers are able to look at the complete picture in designing a sign that identifies your business. It sends the right message and looks as if it was made for the property, the location and the area where it will be located. 

Custom graphic signs are the heart of our business. We have designed graphic signs for interior walls, exterior entrance doors, for vehicles, boats and even specialized industries. The benefit of these signs is they are all truly one-of-a-kind creations that make a statement and send a meaningful message. 

The Meaning 

Graphic design stretches across many different forms and possibilities. It can include the use of specific colors, lines, fonts and images and how they combine to create an impression. 

A well-designed custom graphic design will tell a mini-story to anyone looking at the sign. This can be in the type of font selected or the actual images on the sign. This is a subtle message, but it is incredibly powerful in branding, marketing and advertising your business. 

Creating an Impression 

For our graphic design artists to create the right combination of elements to the signage, we first need to know your message and the impression you want your customers, clients or visitors to take away when they look at the sign. 

For instance, specific colors have different emotional responses for people. Green tends to indicate natural and healthy while gold tends to indicate wealth, prosperity and security. Blue is typically seen as professional, while yellow is a color of energy and vibrancy. 

Of course, the way the color is incorporated into the elements of the graphic sign will also create a distinct impression. This is also a factor of the font and the size of the sign as well as the actual image or graphic that is a part of the look. 

 Finally, where the sign will be located and the colors surrounding the sign will be important. This is true for a vinyl sign going on a vehicle or a sign used on the interior or exterior of the building. Understanding how all of these factors come into play is critical to designing the right look to brand and clearly identify any business.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
