The Signage Design Manual takes the reader, in a simple and straightforward manner, through the step-by-step phases of a signage project. More than 900 illustrations help to make this journey a pleasant experience. The depth and comprehensive scope of the content make this book a unique publication. Not only does it provide information on well-proven working procedures existing methods, design issues, and materials, but it even includes future developments such as electronic navigation tools on mobile devices (or other futuristic personal gear). Important neighbouring knowledge is also addressed, like IT (intellectual property rights), other legal issues, design management and various commercial aspects. The combination of a broad scope and concise information, makes this books accessible to a wide range of readers, from full-time signage or graphic designers, to design students, to all other types of professionals dealing with signage design at various levels. Or outside the professional field to anyone else interested in the complicated art of 'showing the way'.

The signage canon finally has got its own dedicated textbook.
