To choose the best pictorial solution for your signs (we will guide you), ask yourself:

“What kind of business image do you want people to perceive about us?” The sign technique you choose must be relevant to your image.

“What is unique about our business, that others do not provide?” This is the idea you will need to translate into a visual. It suggests to the reader that doing business with you, rather than someone else, will benefit him or her.
