Residential Environments

Mixed-use residential housing is extremely popular today because of its nearness to amenities. Residents want self-contained communities that fill all their needs, whether they’re walking the dog or getting coffee from the shop downstairs. The best mixed-use development projects offer everyday convenience—and an easy way to find the amenities that provide it.

Graphics and signage in a mixed-use development need to act as advertising, wayfinding, and branding. Subtle, intelligently-created signs can convey all of this without being too disruptive for a residential community. At GNU Group, we excel at striking the right signage balance.

How GNU Group Delivers the Best Mixed-Use Development Projects

To provide the right signage for the best mixed-use development projects, GNU Group relies on proprietary programs developed over our years of completing residential projects. Mixed-use development projects benefit significantly from our Sign Profile AnalysisTM. You can save on signage costs with our comprehensive review of your current signage assets that can be leveraged for a fresh sign program.

GNU Group’s proprietary processes are designed to turn your signage program into a turnkey system that’s predictable, flexible, and scalable for years to come. Our designs fit into the landscape of your development to create consistent appeal and connection with your community’s brand.
