I asked for her take on the trends she is seeing with ornamental signs. "The current trends are coming from big cities and little towns all over the country," Dwyer says. "They want smartly designed wayfinding programs assembled around ornamental posts and components. Trusty black is still the most popular color. Dark bronze is another color of choice." In closing, Dwyer shared some final thoughts that show how popular orna- mental is becoming, or perhaps becoming again as it once was. "Over the past several years I have w o r k e d w i t h c i t y managers, homeown- ers associations, engi- neers, salon owners, churches and univer- sities. These projects involved welcome banner posts, light posts, street and traf- fic posts and signs, store front signage, mailboxes and complete campus-wide wayfinding programs. The varieties and combinations offered with this product allow any designer and any sign shop the tools to develop and deliver durable sig- nage with ornamental style." Signs are visual. And they are every- where. By incorporating ornamental features with signs you can make a sign stand out from the numerous more stan- dard or mass produced types that flood the eye. Ornamental signs are one way to build impressions. SDG Contact Scott with your "Building Impres- sion" for future articles.
