There are a lot of things that go into sports complex design and often, signage is the last thing on a designer’s mind. Sports complex design is about vision and flash, so you aren’t usually thinking about practical things like directional signs or foyer signage. However, signage is absolutely vital to sports complex design. In fact, there are few design features that are more important and can cause more headaches than signage. In today’s post, Sports Facilities Advisory will look at how you can best utilize signage for sports complex design.
Evaluating The Need
Signage can be used for a number of different things that can contribute to the overall design of a facility. You don’t have to just use signs to help people maneuver through your sports complex. The first step in terms of signage that every facility needs to take is one of necessity. What signage do you need to keep people safe and keep them moving in the right direction? Bathroom signage, for instance, is simple. However, there are other signs that your facility absolutely needs to keep your sports complex in the clear, legally. This includes parking signage like handicap signs, stop signs, and speed limits. If your facility has a pool, there will need to be signage showing how deep the pool is, among other things. You will also need warning signs around your pools, locker rooms, and playing surfaces that warn of things like wet floors or potential flying objects.
Signage For Complex Design
There are a number of factors that contribute to sports complex design, including color scheme and FF&E, and signage is an easy way to enhance your design theme. Having signs with your logo on them is a great way to brand your facility, both on the interior and exterior. You can also sell signage for advertising, which will help your facility generate revenue. This concept can also go beyond simple posters or billboards in your facility. You can put signage on scoreboards and even on seating.
