Functional and Esthetic Aspects of Guiding Signs / Abdulaziz M. Alageely, Muhyiddin Sayed Ahmad Tarabeh
The main objective of guiding signs in our daily life is to guide the human behavior. so that man can adapt himself easily and safely to, the circumstances around him. Guiding signs must be clear. Simple and brief. and can be abstract and symbolic. Sometimes these signs are a combination of verbal and non- verbal languages. and sometimes consist only of graphics. These signs are of two kinds. The first kind is general, it deals with all people. The second kind is specific: it deals with specific matters. The guiding signs are set to help people and protect them, and if everyone follows them and behaves as they say. Then life will be safe and secure.
