Rickets Point Signage Style Guide
The Bayside City Council Municipality and the Ricketts Point area had a variety regulatory signs which had become confusing for visitors. Nuttshell completed an assessment of Ricketts Point signage to enable an analysis of signage in the area. As a result, we developed an appropriate signage style guide containing a hierarchy of signs to match the location.
Developing an effective signage location plan requires a good understanding of the locality. It is the answer to all questions users would ask. Where am I now? Where do I go now? How do I get to….? How far is that? It is a response to the character and sense of place, it explains visitor’s journeys, and routes, it enhances experience, and provides a chance to activate spaces. Most importantly, it aims to send people on their way with confidence & relative simplicity. It is important to recognise that a consistent design approach is required, and a single design solution will not be answer to all areas.
