Steps of signage approval process


  1. Signage request form

    The first step with any signage project is the signage request form. This form captures important information about the project and allows us to work together to ensure the location you are requesting is permitted for signage.

    Please note: signage reviews may involve coordination with the Office of the University Architect and Facilities Development and Management. Their review may take up to 15 business days. Please allow four weeks for wall and glass wraps, surface clings, interpretive signage, temporary exhibit signage and any signage being affixed to a surface in a public corridor or visible in a public corridor.

  2. Lead communicator review

    Each unit has a lead communicator appointed by their dean or VP. This person is the Brand team's primary contact for signage approvals among other marketing and communication responsibilities. Your lead communicator is asked to review the signage request to ensure they approve of the work being submitted for their unit and for increased visibility into projects.

  3. Office of the University Architect approval (if needed)

    What exactly is the architect’s office reviewing?
    • Reviews space requested to ensure walls and location are permitted for signage and “assigned” to the unit requesting.
    • Is a sign the appropriate medium for the communication required?
    • Does an existing sign type fulfill the requestor’s need or will a custom solution be required?
    • How will the request improve or detract from the aesthetics of the space?
  4. Enterprise Brand Strategy and Management creative review
    Signage requests are reviewed by Enterprise Brand Strategy and Management for brand alignment and to ensure the content does not conflict with other messages or initiatives.

    Common feedback may include:
    • Lack of ASU colors.
    • Incorrect fonts.
    • Image selection (diversity, quality of image, context of image to content, etc.).
  5. Print Lab for printing and installOnce your project has been approved, the ASU Print and Imaging Lab will take it from there! They will work with you on an estimate, proof approvals, printing and installation.
