Disciplines Supported by Sign Services
Environment design involves all of the disciplines that work to create spaces that communicate identity, information, and brand: architecture, interior design, sign making, graphic design, and marketing. The goal of environment design is to shape the experience of the visitors or staff. Wayfinding (how a person navigates through a space), signage, and display signage are integral to a successfully realized environment, whether indoor, outdoor, building, or event/trade show.
Experience design is a discipline concerned with the creation of spaces, services, and products, with the goal of enhancing the personal experience. Regardless of the context (retail, public space, office), experiential design engages the visitor subtly at key touchpoints — the points of interaction — informing, guiding and creating an impression through communication, design, brand and theme.
Interpretation planners and designers create the user experience for informal learning spaces such as museums, galleries, heritage sites, exhibits, event spaces, and other public use spaces. The goal: communication through interaction and visual/graphic story telling. Though interpretation design is often thought of as specific to heritage sites (called heritage interpretation), it also has many applications relevant to the commercial sector. Sandbox creates a variety of interpretive signs for heritage sites, museums, galleries, historical sites, events and educational installations.
