Dongguan acrylic sign manufacturer, tell you the structural design of acrylic sign making
Basic requirements for acrylic signage design
As a professional product, acrylic sign has a very specific personality in addition to its commonality with other industrial products.
The scientific nature of sign design includes: the accuracy of the nominal (mark, scalar, description and name), the legibility of the nominal display, the material of the acrylic sign and the practicality of the color.
1; nominal accuracy
Whether it is acrylic signs, acrylic watches, acrylic panels have the dual role of nominal and decorative. For the nominal role, the product name, model, specifications, technical conditions, scale instructions, text descriptions, etc., must be clear and accurate. The accuracy of the nominal directly reflects the quality and accuracy of the product.
2; nominal legibility
The nominal display is the language of the human-machine dialogue. By manipulating the device nominally, the device provides a "language" feedback of the relevant information through a nominal display. Therefore, the nominal must be easily identifiable, the text and scale must be accurate and clear, so that the "language" of the device is clear.
3; material suitability
There are many kinds of materials used to make acrylic signs. For example, the commonly used metal materials are copper, aluminum and stainless steel; the commonly used non-metal materials are plastic film and hard plastic. Which of these materials is used in which environments, and what features are available, must be scientifically analyzed during design. It is important to understand the nature of the various materials, such as metal signs, and if there is no tight, strong anti-etching protective layer, it should never be used on equipment that has etched liquid or gas escape. Such as ferric chloride, copper chloride, copper sulfate, persulfate, zinc chloride and acid, alkali and other solutions and gases, copper, aluminum, etc. have a strong etching effect. Short days, a few months will make these signs unrecognizable and unrecognizable. Non-metallic signs are not suitable for hot working equipment such as ovens, irons, electric furnaces, plastic sewing machines, etc., which work in high temperature environment, so as to avoid deformation or premature aging of the temperature, and the material may be melted or charred. Different materials will have different characteristics and must not be interrupted by the designer's imagination. Recently, in a certain place in Guangdong Province, when the work of “land name signage” was made, the improper use of materials occurred, and the reflective film for the production of traffic signs was “transplanted” into the process of road signs and house signs. It is not known that the traffic signs are made of reflective film. The use of features and road signs, the specific characteristics of the houseplate looks the same, in fact, it is completely different. Any material has a certain applicable field in the specific product. Otherwise, it not only reflects the designer's lack of understanding of the applicable performance of the material, but also will cause great waste of resources for the society. Hundreds of millions of funds may be destroyed. The designer is subjectively cut off.
4; the practicality of color
The color of the faceplate of the signage device can be designed to be colorful according to different needs. However, purely colorful and beautiful, it is not a substitute for its practicality. Color is not only decorative, more functional, and the unity of the two, which is called the scientific and practical application of color. The customary color in the special environment, although already used by people, still has sufficient scientific basis when initially determining its color, so these popular colors have always been used by people. For example, fire-fighting equipment (including cars, boats, fire extinguishers, buckets) and hazard signals are all red, because red light has the longest wavelength in visible light, people's vision is most sensitive to it, and it has strong penetration and transmission. Capability function. For example, the red light at the intersection of traffic is the function of using the wavelength of red light to play its color in rain and fog, and it can be clearly seen at a long distance. Similarly, the use of red is not only for the purpose of decoration, but in some specific occasions it is more likely to use the function of color to evoke people's association. For example, the use of red to decorate fire-fighting equipment to remind people of the attention is easy to find in an emergency; due to customary relationships, red fire-fighting equipment can give people the association of flames and blood, thus creating a sense of urgency for people to extinguish the fire. . By the same token, military equipment uses the popular color of grass green, and its purpose is to cover the enemy's line of sight and play a role in protecting the target. If too much red is used on the panels, signs, and casings of military equipment, it is easy to expose the target and the masking effect is not achieved. The color treatment of medical equipment and instruments is mostly decorated in white or light colors, which gives the medical staff and the wounded and sick a soft, quiet and clean feeling, which is conducive to the medical staff's work and the patient's treatment. Open-air equipment should take into account the influence of temperature, humidity and sunlight on color and material. Therefore, when designing signage products, materials and colors should be scientifically selected to meet the practicality of the products.
Public identification first requires specification, but it is equally important to consider individual needs. The beauty of the creative design of the logo design is that the norm does not mean the same, colorful, distinctive public logo is a vivid embodiment of the city's vitality. Public signs can be differentiated in different commercial locations or tourist attractions. After all, in the fashion shopping area, you can use cartoon logos or even irritating colors or patterns, while Jing'an Temple, Chenghuang Temple and other attractions keep the logo simple and elegant or more secure. At the same time, in the main public areas, in addition to reflecting traffic information, public signs should also highlight practical information such as public toilets and hospital pharmacies. In this way, individualized "immediate needs" can be met.
In addition, the layout of the public identity should not only focus on areas with a large flow of people, but also ignore areas where there is less flow of people. Sometimes, the more remote the place, the more you need to identify the guide. At this point, the relevant departments should make overall plans and rational allocation.
