To be an effective form of communication, signs must incorporate sciences behind artistic design principles.
When a sign must be read easily in a minimum amount of time such as when traffic passes by at a high rate of speed it is important that the words be large.
To be readable and to convey its message safely a sign must be detectable, conspicuous, legible, and comprehensible. A sign reportedly should be 40 feet of distance per inch of letter height, which allows for maximum comprehension and legibility day and night.
