Commercial Buildings

Environmental graphics are an important component for commercial spaces by giving architectural designers the ability to refresh, update and modernize any commercial building. Identity and placemaking design is a multidisciplinary approach for the design, planning and development of publicly accessible spaces where environmental graphics play an integral role. This role uses visual communication to create experiences that connect places with people.

Most retail spaces and many types of commercial buildings have exteriors that include many windows. Window graphics ensure that the façade of a commercial building can be fully utilized to advertise and inform the public of the offerings inside. Several different options of window graphics are available such as window clings, opaque/clear decals, perforated decals, and frosted decals. When choosing a large scale design for window graphics, it is important to consider décor and ambiance. For example, if you use a multi-panel image for repeating window panels, the inner workings of the commercial workspace will be shielded, and also act as a large scale advertisement that grabs attention.

Architectural signage concerns custom signs and systems implemented in a commercial building. Often included in architectural signage are oversized large-format graphics, textured wall murals, directional signage, glass fixtures/accents, ADA safety signs and digital signage. Architectural signage’s primary function is for wayfinding and brand identification, as this practical element of commercial building design helps maintain a professional appearance while assisting clients and visitors in navigating an unfamiliar complex. The perfect way to merge function and form!

Studies show that about 60% of businesses see an increase of over 10% in profits when they update their business signs. The classic use of neon signage for exteriors of commercial buildings is a great way to revitalize a building exterior and capture nostalgia for the trust in branding that has waned over the years.

Corporate commercial building wall murals influence the initial impressions of visitors. The effect of decoration cannot be understated when creating mood and ambience. Put customers in a “shopping frame of mind” with images that evoke feelings of seasonal memories and familiar surroundings.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that all differently abled members of our society have equal access and opportunity to use public spaces and businesses. Civil rights protections for transportation, schooling, employment, public and commercial building accommodations are covered by the ADA to make sure that quality of life is not inhibited for those commonly considered to be disabled. In any commercial building, it is important to comply with ADA standards. SpeedPro employees are experts at these guidelines and will be happy to discuss with you what needs to take place to properly set up the four main types of signage classifications in the ADA standards: Identification, informational, directional/wayfinding, and overhead.
