City revitalization, specifically in downtown and urban areas, has an affect on the economic growth of a city, its tourism, and its community. Signage plays a major role in helping cities revitalize their downtown areas and helps capitalize on those things that make a city, even a region – authentic and unique. Signage for revitalization and redevelopment, therefore, is ideally incorporated early in the planning process.

Shopping center developers know they need to help tenants capture point-of-sale traffic on Black Friday – the busiest shopping day of the year. More importantly, effective signage should attract shoppers all year long. An out-of-date center with tired signage just won’t draw the traffic it needs to. But rather than a complete renovation, sometimes the most effective – and affordable – solution is to replace or upgrade the existing signage.

Early in 2015, Metro Sign & Awning began designing a freestanding (pylon) sign for a corporate environment that would re-imagine Tewksbury’s workspaces. The corporate campus needed a sign that said more than “we’re here.” It needed to say, “we’re here, we’re corporate, we’re cool, and we’re different.”

Interior directional signage (also called interior wayfinding signage) is incredibly helpful to building users on a day-in and day-out basis.
Of course, those interior signs also must meet ADA standards. But when a facility’s use has changed or a new group of building visitors is expected, a little extra emphasis can help everyone.
