Making Your Professional Office Approachable

The Importance of Approachable Office Signage


Office spaces are just one of many places that people do not often think of when they think of places that might need to purchase signage, but having engaging and approachable signage in an office is just as important as having the same in a retail setting.

There are still potential customers or clients entering the space, and you want them to feel at home and welcomed in that space so that they return, or recommend to others that they use your services.

The purpose of business signage is to engage customers in what services or products you offer, either to give them information about your business (whether it is first contact information, or some new information about changes or promotions going on), or to create a positive association with you. While it is easy to imagine that this is simply applied to, say, a clothing company (a sign might show a new style of shirt, or tell potential customers about a sale), it takes a moment longer to imagine what good, approachable signage in an office setting might look like.

Imagine for a moment that you are a psychologist or a family lawyer. You would be operating out of an office setting. The people who are your prospective clients are probably not in the best state, or having the best time of their lives. They might feel a little bit fragile, or nervous about visiting you, given the kinds of cases you take on (psychological trauma or divorce cases).

For your business to continue to operate smoothly, you need a constant influx of new or repeat clients. For clients to want to return to your office, or to recommend you to other people, they will have to feel that you created a safe, welcoming environment for them in their difficult time. You can do this by investing in well-designed, easy to use office signage.

Clients coming in will need to be able to find your office space, and then possibly follow other directions once they have arrived. To create a safe, welcoming environment, it will help immeasurably to have signage that makes it clear where clients need to go, what they need to do, in a manner that is not confrontational. This can be done through clear signage that puts the principles of graphic design to use to create a positive association with the space of your office. Calming colors and patterns might be used so that clients are made to feel welcome, and large letters so that clients are not confused about where to go will help them feel better about their experience with your office.
