ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As we start returning to work and school there are important design decisions that need to be made regarding how to best adjust our environments. ID Signsystems (IDS) has been working with institutions to create various successful approaches and have found three best practices that should be followed:

Separate the Temporary from the Permanent
COVID-19 information is enormously important at the moment, but it is temporary information. However, there are also permanent information pieces including kiosks, displays and identification signs that work with the COVID-19 information. A strategy for both needs to be developed allowing each piece of information to complement the other while keeping in mind differing material and placement needs.

Modularity is Key
All IDS projects are designed with modularity in mind. Modular systems require more up-front planning but save time and money in the long-term. Modular systems involve combining temporary and permanent information while also considering ongoing expansion and maintenance. For return to work and school, a good plan is to start with modular kiosks and displays to present temporary information. These "Frame" systems are more adaptable and easier to work with.

Stands Over Stickers
Stickers, posters and other temporary tack-ons are inexpensive but there are far more visible and easier temporary approaches that are even more effective.  Movable display and wayfinding stands are easy to work with and can be turned into more visible landmarks. Larger movable partitions are also highly effective for separating people and making important information more visible.
