What is the purpose a signage manual?
It is understood that Signage Technical Manuals are by nature a living document, hence providing opportunities to undertake and develop additional sign types based on the provided templates found on the pages of the manual or attached compact disc issued with the released of the package.
The purpose of any signage manual is to encourage and provide specific guidance to architects, building designers, project managers, building surveyors, venue managers and sign installers by providing guidelines, technical information and visual elements as a model to the planning of a comprehensive sign program to be issued for procurement and manufacture of different signage types. The manual also will reflect, reinforce and give support to the development of the distinct corporate visual identity.
