(Extract) 'Why a book on architectural signing and graphics? Various publications have touched upon aspects of the total process of designing these systems, but none has attempted a comprehensive approach. Other books have included pictorial reviews of current work in the field, but none provides a thorough survey of the best work accomplished during the last ten years.
While other books have described functional signing systems, this book investigates ways to integrate signing and architecture, through an environmental approach. Of necessity, this book is personal and selective. But it is based on broad experience—the authors' combined experience of over thirty years in signing, graphics, interior design, and architecture. This varied experience from related disciplines provides the special viewpoint needed to integrate signing with architectural spaces and the larger environment. From this vantage point, the authors have formulated methods for solving the planning and functional problems of signing, and they have established aesthetic guidelines for architectural graphics.
This book has been organised to combine an explanation of the overall process of planning and designing signing systems and architectural graphics with specific methods and technical information needed in various phases of the process.'
