AHS Exterior Signage Guidelines

AHS' Exterior Signage Guidelines will give sites advice and templates for outdoor signage.



Newly updated and expanded, the AHS Exterior Signage Guidelines contain almost 100 pages of insight to choose, design, produce and place outdoor signage at Alberta Health Services' sites across the province.

Signage is an important part of any visit to an AHS site: it welcomes and guides people to and from their destination. Effective signage quietly serves site users and sets in motion a more positive experience. Confusing or inaccurate signage can fuel a frustrating and negative experience.

Our guidelines have been drafted by Capital Management, Community Engagement & Communications and Cygnus Design Group, a signage consultant, during the past three years. Through our work, we've gathered input from teams such as Parking Services, Space Management, Legal and Planning & Performance. We also worked with many new and existing sites to meet their signage needs.

The project team is now seeking feedback from stakeholders before submitting the guideline for approval by AHS' Executive Leadership Team.

You're invited to take the survey below and add your thoughts and ideas for improving and using the guidelines.

If you have any questions, please contact:

Jason Morton, senior communications advisor at jason.morton@ahs.ca

Bev Knudtson, guidelines & evaluation specialist at bev.knudtson@ahs.ca

Terry Bullick, branding director at terry.bullick@ahs.ca
