Wayfinding Signage

Wayfinding Signs

Wayfinding signs are an essential part of any large or complex facility. Well-designed wayfinding signs make a big difference to your customer experience, making it easier for people to find what they are looking for and get where they need to go. We will create wayfinding signs that are informative whilst reflecting your branding and venue styling too.

Wayfinding signage – your way

All of our wayfinding signs are designed and produced to your exact requirements. You may already have a wayfinding scheme that you’d like us supply some elements of, or you may be looking for our designers to help you design the whole scheme for you. We’re extremely flexible and will work collaboratively with you to make sure you achieve your objectives.

Our Wayfinding Signage Clients

Many of the largest venue owners, operators and their agencies have trusted Carousel Lights with their wayfinding projects. We’ve produced illuminated wayfinding signage for the Young V&A museum – notably described by The Guardian as the ‘coolest wayfinding signs’, as well as The O2, The NEC, Barclaycard Arena and Tottenham Hotspur FC. We also work with Bar and Nightclub operators to provide neon and lightbox wayfinding signage for their venues.

Illuminated Wayfinding signs

We started off as an illuminated signage company, so illuminated wayfinding signage is our expertise. All of our signs are designed and produced here in the UK, and we work with a broad range of materials and lightsources meaning we’re not tied to any specific product type or brand.

Wayfinding signage installation

We work with a broad team of experts, all of whom are specialist sign installers with all of the appropriate tickets and insurance. Depending on the final design and specification of your wayfinding signage, it may be that on-site contractors are able to install them, or with other products such as traditional glass neon, it may be that your signage required specialist installation which we can help with.

Free wayfinding signage advice & quotes

We’re proud of our consultative approach, which has led to many of the biggest brands returning to us time and again for their wayfinding signage. We offer free advice and quotes, and are also more than happy to work backward from an allocated wayfinding budget, helping you with cost-engineering to ensure your project rolls out as first envisaged.

Ready to go?

If you’ve got an initial idea or concept for your wayfinding signage, or a detailed specification, then drop us an email or give us a call and we’ll help you take it from there. With all of our wayfinding signs being made here in the UK, we can typically turn projects around within 10-15 working days of final approval, but the more time we have then the better. Contact us here and we look forward to helping you with your wayfinding projects.

Still have questions about your wayfinding signage?

No problem. There’s lots of detail to think about, but you can happily leave that in our safe hands. All we know is what you’re trying to achieve and we can do the rest. Feel free to contact us here with any questions.
