Wayfinding signs can be traced way back into ancient times. Even before we knew how to read and write, we were using signs to convey distance, time, direction and ownership. From symbols engraved in stone to the first words hewn into boulders, humans have endeavored to communicate with one another.
The first known wayfinding system was developed by the Romans, whose directional signs, ‘The Milestones,’ spread throughout the empire. Their seven-foot high stone pillars informed passersby of the distance to the nearest city. Since then, times have moved on. With the advent of the motor car, the first road signs were developed… and as civilization has developed, so has our need to communicate information, regulations and directions, with an increasingly complex series of signs.
Here at Vista System, we are proud to be the inheritors of this illustrious history, and to be taking the world of directional signage into the future.
Vista System brings a new method of wayfinding to our modern jungle. Instead of the designer and architect having to dive deep into the signage infrastructure each time they take on a new project, we have developed modular signage systems especially for them.
This is quite a significant advancement in the timeline of directional signage. Once, you would have had no other choice but to invest valuable time, money and human resources into planning and designing your wayfinding systems from scratch.
Now, with the modular concept introduced by Vista System, you are able to choose a ready-made system, off the shelf – yet one that perfectly aligns with your project’s needs, style and design line. Instead of having to worry about the color and shape of the stone columns, in order to design a uniform look, all you need to do is choose the product family that best fits your project, and let Vista do the rest.
Vista’s product families enable designers to plan their messages and directional signs, to guide their audience from the parking area, lobby, elevators, corridors, paths and open spaces, ensuring that everyone knows where they are and how to reach their destination.
Our modular signage families include outdoor and indoor signage, as well as illuminated signs, suspended signs, two-sided pylons and dozens of other kinds. This is why Vista’s wayfinding systems are chosen again and again by architects in projects as varied as: commercial buildings, public buildings, offices, hotels, medical clinics and transportation hubs.
The infinite variety of sizes and types of signs within our product families allows us to provide the designer with vast design flexibility and uniformity.
To illustrate the design, look and size of our various signs, as well as their numerous usages, check out this small sampling from various product families that have been used as directional signs in a huge variety of projects.
As a designer, it’s important for you to understand that within the frames of Vista System’s signs, lay the building blocks of the directional signage system that allow us to customize signs for you in any size and finish you desire.
