The Sign Design Guide

This information will assist museums in ensuring signage is accessible. It supports museums in meeting section 3.2.2, ‘The museum must have appropriate signs and directions inside and outside the building of the Accreditation Standard.’

The Sign Design Guide is published jointly by the Sign Design Society (SDS) and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). The guide is concerned with making environments accessible to everyone and addresses the concept of ‘inclusive signage’. It provides clear guidance on producing signs and other wayfinding information. It will not only assist UK users to comply with the Disabilities Discrimination Act, but will be of benefit to other readers in giving guidance on best practice.
