First impressions count

So many things, large and small, can contribute to the first impression you create with guests & visitors to your facility. Do they feel welcome? Cared for? Informed? Safe? Secure? One of the ways in which you communicate the most clearly about who and what you are is through the signage you select. Industrial designer Bill Whiteley has created a range of interior & exterior sign products renowned for their functionality, esthetic simplicity & user-friendly attributes. These products can be used individually or as a base from which to build a complete wayfinding program.

Hospitality Signage

The Hospitality Industry is like no other

The hospitality industry is like no other - a residential, leisure, & business support environment in 'front of house', combined with a fast-paced, 24 hour service delivery system in 'back of house' - each area with its own particular needs and challenges.

Guest requirements include the need to be able to operate as independently as possible in finding specific rooms, locations, staff or services (including support for special needs) and to be informed about particular events as well as safety and security procedures.

For staff, signage must provide the details - informational, directional, identification, safety and security - to support the safe and efficient running of the facility. It must also be hard-wearing and easy to update and maintain.

For management, in addition to all other critical considerations, signage must also meet appropriate building codes and fire regulations.

In all cases, language diversity, special needs and other considerations may add complexity to sign content or image display.

Permanent or Changeable?

Based on its content or purpose, signage may have text that is unlikely to change over time, for example facility directories, restaurant, bar and room names, floor numbers, washroom facilities, parking & traffic flow information, etc. On the other hand, signs containing event details, office signs including employee names and titles, etc may require more frequent updating. Wm. Whiteley Limited designs and manufactures signs and sign systems which can accommodate the need for both permanent and changeable text. Our changeable signs are designed to hold paper inserts which can be updated virtually instantaneously using on site computers and printers. Let us work with you to develop a sign schedule identifying the types and content of signs required for your project.
