Environmental signage is a vehicle to share brand messaging by using existing space to tell a story. It allows businesses to turn blank spaces into branded environments that evoke an emotional appeal. It blurs the lines between utility and art by combining function with graphic design to transform otherwise underutilized spaces. Environmental signage fosters engagement with customers and employees and enables you to make an impact at your retail location, office space or within the community using thoughtfully designed signs.
Environmental signage can establish a brand identity, reinforce brand values and create positive customer experiences. Some examples of environmental signage include:
- wayfinding information
- window graphics
- word walls
- wall graphics and murals
- interpretive graphics or art installations
- immersive spaces
Benefits of Using Environmental Signage
SET THE TONE
Your signage gives customers an idea of what your brand stands for and provides context for what kind of experience your customers can expect. Where does your brand fall in the larger scheme of things? How do you compare to the competition? Environmental signage visually communicates and conveys this information. Kinder’s retail location in Concord did this in spades showcasing it’s heritage and mission using wall graphics throughout the store.
Environmental signage fosters engagement with customers as well as employees. It can create an emotional connection through imagery, color and location. Does it surprise and delight? Is it unique and creative? Retail store, Anthropology in Walnut Creek, used environmental graphics on the outside and inside of the elevators to create a cohesive and welcoming customer experience.

According to Fedex Office, who operates approximately 2,000 locations in the U.S., over 2 out of 3 consumers believe that business signage reflects the quality of its products and services.
