I am looking for a word to describe the big logo sign that one normally can see in front of a headquarters building, for example here:

XEROX Parc street sign

I tried to google the words people use for this sign, but found nothing but "a sign".

    A graphic designer might tell you that’s a wordmark rather than a logo, but either way I don’t know of any specific name for that type of sign. – Brian Nixon May 13 '12 at 10:53
  • @BrianNixon: A wordmark is a kind of logo. – Henry May 13 '12 at 14:48

In the sign business, these are called monument signs.

  • If placed at the entrance to a business, city, or subdivision, they are more specifically called entrance monument signs. – JLG May 14 '12 at 3:22
