The freestanding range is structured around modular sizing of the graphic information panels based on best practise standards. The sign range is available in both horizontal and vertical orientations to suit the location and information provision.
Designed for large parks and open spaces that are rich in amenity, historic and interpretive information. The larger information panel proportions allow for full site maps presented at a legible and engaging scale.
The finger post combines natural Oak post with light weight durable aluminium directional fingers. This design approach brings the highest standard of legible information and flexibility of graphic styles with the beauty of timber.

sign location plan
The success on any wayfinding system is dictated by the delivery of the right information in the right place. Our team have many years of experience in strategic planning and locating the best positions for signage and street furniture to compliment the environment. Wayfinding signage should be there when you look for it while enhancing the streetscape and creating a sense of place, not visual clutter.
Our team are experts in managing information content. We have proven development tools to create data structure and manage content review with quality control measures to ensure accurate information content is implemented.
Our maps are very effective communication devices that convey a wealth of diverse information in a visually attractive, easy to interpret and accessible manner. Based on international standards we have developed our own best practise mapping conventions and applied them to the challenges encountered by pedestrians wishing to understand their location, find their destination quickly or easily navigate around the public realm.
Our team of graphic designers have specialised expertise in information design for the built environment. We understand the challenges of delivering information in a 3-dimensional format, where physical conditions such as lighting, reflection and crowds of people can all have a significant impact on its effectiveness. With reference to international standards, we test layout options to ensure information is presented in the most intuitive and easily understood manner.
