Why Simplicity Works with Bank Signs


If you check out the signs we did for Bank of the Sierra, you'll see a business name and logo. From outward appearances, these bank signs are quite simple, but don't let this simplicity fool you. Sometimes, a direct and to-the-point approach works best when you want to attract current customers and make new ones. At Dave's Signs, our designers have the uncanny ability to take important marketing concepts and translate them into simple and effective signage for your business. Here is what we mean:

The Value of Simplicity

Many times, people make things more complex than necessary to force others to think they are smart or clever. The truth is, simplicity is the most intelligent approach you can use. Albert Einstein once said, "If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself."

Look at the Bank of the Sierra signs again. A six-year-old can understand them. These bank signs give you all the information you need.

The Problem with Too Much Information

At the turn of the 21st Century, two psychologists (Iyengar and Lepper) conducted a study at Draeger's Supermarket in Menlo Park, California. They tried two separate display strategies. First, they set out two dozen jars of jam to sample.

Later, they used the same display, but it only contained a half-dozen jars. The large display attracted more people, but the small display generated a lot more sales than the large one. What is the lesson here? Don't overload your signs with too much detail, or you could overwhelm your customers.

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.
