Signage informs people of their surroundings and helps them navigate from place to place from a functional standpoint; signs identify places and indicate our way-finding principles.
Signage Services include the design, determination and inclusion of text and symbols as part of the university’s identification, way-finding and information. We prioritize:
- Clear and consistent graphics, typography and message
- Consistent placement of signs across campuses for maximum effectiveness
Each type of signage follows specific design guidelines.
Exterior signage helps visitors and the community find buildings and locations on campus. Exterior signs promote a consistent identity and help ensure a positive first impression of the university.
Interior signage provides way-finding information to ensure the safety and security of the campus’s constituents and visitors, including individuals with disabilities. Interior signage includes guidelines for room name signage, restroom signage, core building signage, elevator signage, stairwell signage, emergency exit signage, accessibility signage, etc.
Donor Recognition Signage
Recognizing donors is an important way for LAU to express its deep gratitude and show supporters how their generosity helps foster excellence. Interior and exterior customized signage design is done at the request of the Development Office according to the set guidelines.
Commemorative plaques, which are historical and/or memorial in nature, are distinct from donor plaques. Many commemorative plaques at LAU identify the site of a former LAU building (e.g., Sage Hall, the oldest building).
In considering memorials to students, LAU favors approaches that honor the student’s contribution to the community and continue that legacy for others. Memorial signs for benches, seats, programs, or other landscape elements are prepared upon request; installation is completed in coordination with the requesting department.
Signage maintenance includes updating signs when requested further to relocation, change in functions, repair, etc.
