This is a one of a kind program that only has 37 participants total throughout North America.  Selected participants are involved in sign creation and installation, while others are in sales, marketing, and business/product development.  The first meeting of the 2019 ISA Elite Class is at the Las Vegas, NV International Sign Expo 2019 in April. They will also be attending an industry leadership training program at ISA headquarters in the fall.

Lori Anderson, the President and CEO of the International Sign Association, said “Each year, the ISA Elite bring a level of excitement to the industry. This group, in particular, will benefit from the many diverse connections they’ll be able to make. As with previous groups, they’ll be able to take what they’ve learned back to their companies, where they can make a major impact.”

“The ISA Elite program has proven invaluable in developing the next generation of sign, graphics and visual communications industry leaders. The networking provides connections that participants can take back into their businesses and help them solve problems or maximize opportunities. ” said Lain Mackenzie, Vice President of Meetings and Events.

First, let’s imagine going to an airport and trying to figure out where you need to go without any signage, maps, or symbols to help guide your way. Not only would this would be extremely frustrating, but stressful and time-consuming. This is where Hi Signs Wayfinding Program can help.

segd We are members of the SEGD (Society for Experiential Graphic Design).

Wayfinding refers to information and signs that guide visitors and guests through a physical environment and are designed to help enhance their experience and understanding of the space. It is extremely important in complex environments and buildings with multiple areas. The base of wayfinding is to help people find their way.

In order to avoid frustration of your guests, they often need visual cues such as maps, arrows, directions, and symbols to find their way through your facility or location. Wayfinding is needed at Transportation Facilities such as Busing & Subway Systems, as well as at University/Training Campuses, Healthcare Facilities, Urban Centres, and Municipalities. These areas can prove to be stressful and time consuming for people to find their direction if little or no wayfinding has been put in place.

Effective wayfinding often provides more safety, security, and overall comfort/happiness of your guests and customers. If they can easily find their final destination or area within your building, wayfinding has already reduced their initial stress of “being lost”. Municipal wayfinding is extremely important to your towns and cities, to enhance local and visitor movement.

Hi Signs offers complete wayfinding design, setup, and installation to help simplify routes and map out areas within your building or location. We develop the signage and information systems in-house for both pedestrians and motorists, each having their own challengers navigating streets and walkways.

Many wayfinding systems include signage, maps, arrows, color-coding, symbols, and other communications to help ease the flow. We focus on creating a plan to use easy-to-follow signage and legible directions to your customer or guest’s destinations.

Channel letters are commonly used in exterior signage on businesses and buildings.  They are typically aluminum or plastic, and shaped into 3D letter forms.  The face refers to the surface seen by the customer while the return refers to the sides of the letter or the can.  Channel letters are mounted individually on a wall or are mounted to a backing before because mounted to the wall.

Hi Signs offers a variety of channel letters from molded polymer to hand-bend aluminum letters.

Open Face Channel Letters

These were the most common channel letter for quite some time.  They are typically aluminum, shaped cut into letters with the can side of the face exposing the neon or LED behind the letters.  These are becoming less popular due to light pollution bylaws requiring more diffusing of the lights, less exposure of the actual light source is needed.

Internally Lit Channel Letters

These are often called front lit channel letters. Similar to the Open Face Channel Letters, they have the open side facing the customers but the face has a colored face which hides the light source inside.  The light is then diffused through the face and lights each letter evenly.

Reverse Lit Channel Letters

Reverse lit channel letters are also known as reverse pan channel letters, back lit, and halo lit channel letters.  The letters have open face of these letters faces the wall.  The customers see a solid face on the letters, using custom colors, and can be used without any illumination.  Halo lit refers to the illumination from behind the letter.  They can be mounted directly onto the wall, or off the wall using studs or raceway.

Front / Back Lit Channel Letters

These are a combination or internally lit and back lit channel letters.
