Providing essential navigation around the simplest buildings to the most highly complex sites, wayfinding and directional signage is important to get right.

Wayfinding schemes for our clients in Greater Manchester and throughout the UK must work with your architecture, creating visual aids that are quickly referenced, easily understood and on-brand, whilst accessible for all. Visitors and those living, working or studying within your building need to be able to move freely, safely and efficiently, guided by clear and considered wayfinding and directional signage.

Professionally planned wayfinding & directional signage by Impression, Greater Manchester

Starting every wayfinding and directional signage project with a full Consult session, Impression's experienced team, based in Bolton in Greater Manchester and working nationwide, works with you to plan your wayfinding scheme in Greater Manchester and across the UK, incorporating both internal and external directional signage to engage visitors from the moment they arrive at your site.

Consult is crucial for wayfinding and directional schemes. We'll carry out a survey and audit of your site following a walk-through, creating a detailed plan which identifies problem areas, key signage points such as entrances and exits, highlighting specific points of interest, marking out accessible routes for those who need them, and indicating those parts of your site which are not to be entered or used, such as staff areas or store rooms.
