The need for appropriate information and efficient management of our environment has increased in recent years as cities have become more international and complex. Recognizing this trend, the SDA has been contributing to the improvement and promotion of sign designs since its establishment in April, 1965.
The SDA consists of a variety of members such as sign designers, interior designers, graphic designers, lighting designers, architectural designers and landscape designers as well as organizations such as educational facilities, research institutions and associated industries. This implies that the inspiration for sign designs comes from various fields and attracts attention from various design disciplines.
Currently, the sign design industry in Japan is one of the most active design circles in the world. It is believed that the demand for sign designs will increase in future years as a major factor for the revitalization of local areas and as a key element of image building strategies for corporations.
