2018 is here and the year brings with it some trends that are worth watching out for. Here, B&B Image Group offers its projections concerning the biggest hits in signs that will not only be popular in 2018 but will also make your brand more noticeable.


1.      Distressed Edging
Making an image modern for 2018 can include a distressed look to the material or colors you choose. This distressed look can be eye-catching for a certain demographic and makes the viewer stop among the business to check out what your signage has to say.

2.      Color Channels
While playing with different color channels has been a trend among graphics designers for a while now, 2018 will see a different spin on this idea. Whether it's a sign with a distorted view of reality, a holographic image or even a hallucination, you can expect this trend to catch on fire during the coming year.

3.      Double Light
Graphic design trends will increasingly use double color lighting to add a "wow" factor to their signs. Using this effect allows the designer to transform what was a simple composition into one that is not only modern looking but also edgy as well. This effect is made possible by using color channel splitting or by using two sources of light.

4.      Double Exposure Duotone
Double exposure is another trend that isn't new. Rather it's been simmering on the back burner for awhile. In 2018, though, double exposure will be getting the attention it deserves. This trend is actually a combination that is achieved by using one of two techniques. In one, the designers use different images that overlap each other in monochrome colors. The other involves doubling the image to achieve the effect of the image being ahead of itself.
