A closer look at Landmark’s interpretation signs and panels 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.
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. Some useful points are listed below:
Our experienced design team can create the entire panels for you, or we can work with your material. Mapping, illustrations, historical content, copywriting are all areas for consideration. Graphic styles can be traditional or modern, designed to appeal to a particular age group or be more versatile.
The content can be uploaded to your website, and along with printed leaflets will spread the message further.
The panels are digitally printed and can be supplied in different materials according to your requirements and budget. HardRok is a premium panel with pin-sharp graphics and 10 year anti-fade guarantee. We can also supply foam board, aluminium composite panel, solid aluminium plate, polycarbonate, GRP, etched steel plate and cast resin.

From a simple lectern to a double-sided sign shelter, your interpretation 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 the site the interpretation panels provide the interest and somewhere to stop and reflect. Some benches and bins nearby will help create a gathering point and improve the visitor experience.
Whilst these will depend of the location of the signs Landmark can supply 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 advise on the most appropriate material for your signs.
Try to site your interpretation sign or panel where it will be visible, but without spoiling the view. An angled lectern will less intrusive than a vertical panel, sometimes posts with small graphics panels or rubbing plates and work well.
Timber structures are best sited away from overhanging trees and other damp areas.
