    Want to enhance the viewing experience for your visitors?

    A well designed and easy to understand interpretation panel can go a long way in making your visitors feel more comfortable in their surroundings, and it can create a great user experience for them, enabling them to make the most of their visit. This can increase the likelihood of them returning and can also be a boon for your on-site staff, as they have to spend less time directing and informing visitors.

Stockport Museums service is absolutely delighted with the quality of the product and the service received from Landmark on what for us was an extensive new wayfinding signage project at one of our Historic Houses. We would not hesitate to recommend this company and will most certainly use them again if we require any further wayfinding signage.  – Stockport Museums Service


This is the art of bringing your site to life. Whatever the visitor is looking at, there is sure to be a story behind it and Landmark can create an engaging and unforgettable experience to help captivate, inform and educate your users. Interpretation is more than just the panel, there is the sign structure, materials and location to consider, all of which have a major impact on the effectiveness.

Here are some useful points to consider for your signage:

Interpretation signage & panel design

Our experienced design team can create all the panels for you, or we can work with your material. Mapping, illustrations, historical content, and copywriting are all areas for consideration. Graphic styles can be traditional or modern, and they can be designed to appeal to a particular age group or be more versatile.

The content can be uploaded to your website and printed on leaflets to spread the message further.

HardRok is a premium panel with pin-sharp graphics and 10-year anti-fade guarantee.

Sign structures

From a simple lectern to a double-sided sign shelter, your interpretation signage can be displayed in many ways. We recommend an orientation sign at key entry points with a map showing routes or points of interest. Some coordinated wayfinding such as fingerpost signs or waymarker posts will direct visitors the most suitable way.

Further into your site the interpretation panels provide points of interest and somewhere for people to stop and reflect. Some benches and bins nearby will help create a gathering point and improve the visitor experience.

Sign Materials used in interpretation signs and panels

Whilst these will depend on the location of the signs, Landmark can supply signage in metal, timber and recycled plastic.

Metal signs are aluminium or steel and can be supplied powder coated or sprayed. Steel can also be stainless or corten, an attractive finish that rusts naturally to form a protective coating.

Timber signs are usually oak, but can be other hardwoods or softwood. These timbers will gradually weather down to an attractive silver-grey or can be treated with a UV-resistant coating to retain their colour.

Recycled plastic is fade-proof and rot-proof and can be very useful for sites with a high moisture content. Available in brown and black.

We can help advise you on the most appropriate material for your signs depending on the setting and location of your signs.

Try to site your interpretation sign or panel where it will be visible but will not spoil the view. An angled lectern will be less intrusive than a vertical panel or sometimes posts with small graphics panels or rubbing plates work well.

Timber structures are best sited away from overhanging trees and other damp areas.
