Building Strong Communication Skills

Communication is the key to everything we say and do.  If we are not able to communicate with others then we are lost.  One way to communicate with people is through signs.  Signs allow us to create a universal message that when viewed is understood and, in many cases, followed.  To create signs and graphics austin you can use a wide variety of companies and materials.  Here are some tips that you can use to better communicate your ideas and develop powerful messages.

Know your message

This is the most important part of communication.  If you don’t know your message, then no one else will know it either.  Many people will say, “You know what I mean or what I meant.”  Well, knowing what you said and knowing what you mean are totally different things.  This is why having a clear and precise message is key to communications.

Use clear materials

When letting people know about your message you want it to be presented clearly and professionally.  Having a cardboard sign or something scribbled in magic marker just won’t get people’s attention and interest.  You need to have a sign that is made of strong materials to last as long as you need to display your message and will allow your message to be easily read and understood.

Use visuals

There is a universal language in visual elements.  When we have an image of a rain cloud and raindrops, the message of it raining is universally known.  Using symbols in your messages such as a hamburger or sandwich can signify to people that food is available.  A dot with three curved lines above it can signify that you have wi-fi service. 

The more visuals you put into your signs the better.  However, you don’t want your signs to be cluttered with symbols or words.  When creating your signs you don’t need to convey everything that you offer, just the main concept and purpose of what it is you do, need or are about.
