Eastercon Wiki

The various signs, produced by the convention, put up around the convention. Not any other posters or silliness perpetrated by the membership!

Usually this is a sub-division under Ops, quite often down to one person to create the style and basic stack of signs. There will always be requirements for new signs/signage *at* the convention, especially for Programme.

What sort of signs?[]

  • Directional ("This way to Ops")
  • Locational ("This is the Main Hall")
  • Information ("Registration opens at 10am")
  • Instuctional ("Please turn off your mobile phones")
  • Silly ("You are here" without any attached map! Or "Beware of the grue")
  • Programme ("what is on in this room today", "this item has been rescheduled", "no under 18s allowed", "Room Full" etc.)
  • Others (can't think of others off the top of my head, but I'm sure there are some!)

What is important in signs?[]

  • Clear
  • Unambiguous
  • Obvious that they are "official" (so convention logo/branding, consistent design etc.)
  • Big enough
  • Not so many it is confusing!
