Image #4: An ideal sign should include the following elements. • Contrast between background color and messaging. • Readable font that makes the message clear at a quick glance. Be consistent in font type, size and color. Remove excessive information. • Upper and lower case lettering is preferred to ALL UPPER CASE.
