4.8.6. Proportions/Shapes. Due to the diversity of some existing entrance signs, the application
of the symbol and letterforms composition may vary in overall size, but must maintain the
based on "Arial Black" font. The shapes of neither the symbol nor the letterforms are to be
altered in any way.
4.8.7. Visibility. Position and orient the symbol and letterforms in a way that provides the best
visibility from public ways. Size the symbol and letterforms proportional composition as large
as is practical so as to be easily read from a reasonable distance. Avoid a cluttered appearance
by having no more than one application of the symbol and letterforms at an entrance, unless the
entrance sign is oriented to be viewed from either side.
4.8.8. Layout. See Figure 4.5 for sign layout options. Dimensions shown are based on
application to the standard Sign Type A1. When conditions require a larger or smaller
application of the symbol and letterforms, all dimensional proportions are to be maintained.
