Both signs and banners are very critical tools that form the core of effective communication. That is why much due diligence is needed in the design of these two valuable communication tools. The design should make the content pass along the intended message without any ambiguity or hindrance to understanding. The objective should be to create vivid, welcoming and appealing signs and banners that will resonate with the targeted audience. This may be a challenge, but not anymore if you adopt these best practices in your designs:
Use the Most Common and Standard Sizes
You understand what uniqueness means to your brand. It is the one thing that gives you the identity that your business has to your loyal customers. However, when it comes to banners and signs, you have to keep with the conventional flow as opposed to trying something out of the ordinary. Keep the sizes standard and let them be the ones that people are used to.
The Content Should be Readable
With your text on the sign or banner, you need it readable and legible in the first instance. Visitors do not have the time to strain to try to make out unsuitable font and inappropriately colored text. Make your headlines stand out.
Get the Right Colors
Colors form the basis for the success of banners and signs. You need to get the right colors that complement the message that you wish to pass. Different colors are associated with different situations and things. You need to make sure that the emotions you want to evoke in your target audiences are what the color you use will achieve. Colors according to different cultures are associated with different meanings, so be sure not to offend any part of your audiences by the wrong choice of color in your design. Keep it simple and meaningful at all times.
Create a Sense of Urgency
The most successful advertising campaigns take advantage of creating urgency. In your content and overall design, make sure that you establish a sense of immediate action that if one does not act instantly they stand to lose. Put it in a way that your audiences will rush to act according to your objective. Be sure to follow through your urgency promise and do not create lies for the sake of it. After all, the effect is marginalized if your customers figure out that your one-day only 50% off sale is a daily occurrence.
Getting the best out of your signs and banners will ultimately add an impetus to your marketing. It is equally important to ensure that the content can effectively promote your brand recognition among customers. That is why you have to maintain some order in arranging the components in your designs. Your brand logo should always come at the top, followed by the product that you are offering and then a call to action. Take note of the best practices highlighted here and good luck in conquering the world of business with your high flying adverts.
