Signage that Works
Simplicity is KEY! Signs should be designed for a “quick glance.” The next time you’re
driving on the freeway, think about the billboards that attract your
attention. The most effective ones will often have four key elements:
• Simple design
• Graphics that appeal to the target audience
• Easy-to-read font
• Minimal text
Here are a few tips for developing signage that will hit its mark:
• Determine your purpose (informational, motivational, emotional)
• Use color to grab attention and reinforce your brand and message
• Ensure the background enhances the text and takes the viewer through the message
• Select images that will relate to your target audience
• Construct an easy- to-read message; each word should have a purpose

The grid is one of the most important tools a designer has at his/her disposal. They’ve always been a difficult thing to explain to clients, though luckily, the results speak for themselves. Also luckily, the clean, organized look they impart is en vogue right now, which means better design is becoming “hip,” for lack of a less unsavory term. — gridness.net
Why are grids so important in design? The grid is a system for organizing elements on a page. Taking into account the nature of the content and size of the page. Grids are especially useful in creating a consistent layout system for multi-page layouts (Web sites, mags, books) but are also helpful in creating harmonious comps for a single piece such as a poster.
