Airport signage holds a special place in wayfinding; your airport will have thousands of visitors passing through daily. The visitors at airports are often times rushed, excited, stressed, or could speak a different language entirely. It is crucial that the directional and identification signs are direct and clear to your visitors, making their visit effortless and improving passenger experience.

At Nicolson Associates, Inc. our first step is to do an in depth master evaluation of the airport. From the time a visitor enters the property they are in need of directional signage starting with finding the correct lane for the their terminal, to parking, check-in, and their gate number. The best way to create a flow is to use:

  • A proper color scheme to coordinate with spaces

  • A high contrast from lettering to background to ensure a good readability experience.

  • Symbols to ensure international visitors are able to find facilities needed.

  • The proper use of arrows to help traffic flow.


Strategy and Planning

We will start by completing a walk through to evaluate both interior and exterior needs. This will allow us to create a case study of flow and movement of the environment. We work with your team to ensure the most accurate and seamless flow of visitors to their destination.


It will take 4-6 weeks to complete a proposal. We will provide you with a drawing(s) of your sign, materials & functionality. Designs are specific to your needs in terms of ada guidelines, quality of materials, and incorporating your organizations brand and architecture.


Our team of fabricators have years of experience working custom signage. The timeline can range from 2- 6 months depending on the complexity of the project.
