Every company, no matter how popular, is always changing its services, approaches or even core strategies. Since we are living in a very competitive business environment, this practice is extremely recommended.
Since the companies are changing all the time, this also happens with their signs. It’s not uncommon for a giant company like Coca Cola or Google to decide that their signs need to be updated and turned into something better.
As a company owner, you’ve probably had the same thought, and you considered changing your company’s signs. Here are the main reasons why popular brands do it.
- The Signs Are Getting Obsolete
When creating a signage system, most of us want to give it a futuristic design that would inspire the clientele. This approach is highly recommendable, but if you designed that futuristic signage 10 or 20 years ago, then you should consider replacing it with something more “current.” Of course, you can always keep the main motifs of your signage, but aspects like fonts, color display or style have to be updated to the modern trends.
- When We Change Our Products/Services
Changing our activity/product line from time to time is perfectly normal in order to satisfy our target audience. A lot of famous companies did that before and this practice didn’t affect their brand in any way. Still, when we decide to take our company to a different path or to expand our offer, it’s essential to express those changes through the signage system.
If our company has a thematic logo which presents our services, it’s important to add or remove any change that occurs in our activity and to make sure that it’s reflected in our signage. In this case, the main logo should not be changed at all, as long as it’s already updated to the actual trends.
- To Approach a New Target Audience
At a certain point, we might decide that our company has a greater potential and that it can be promoted to a wider audience. For example, if we own a classic restaurant, our target audience mainly consists of middle-aged people or families. However, at a point, we decide that we can make some adjustments to our business to attract teenagers as well. When we are doing that, it’s essential to upgrade our signage system and turn it into something more appealing for young people, but at the same time stay professional. This way, our target audiences will know what to expect when coming to our restaurant and they will feel a real connection with our business.
