Event Trends: Signage

Signage can be a great way to change the look and feel of an event. Your organization’s brand can show through, not just in fonts and colors, but in the medium used to create the signs. Typically, event signage consists of plain printed boards or arrows set up around the event space, but there are other options! Take a look at some new trends we’ve been loving.

Neon

What isn’t better in bright, glowing letters? Neon signs may not be cheap, but integrating them into your event will make it pop. Think about using a mobile event app to direct guests, but neon signs to add to the theme.

Acrylic

Clear signs, whether glass or acrylic, are having a moment. It’s easy to see why! The lack of color makes them easy to use with any color scheme.

 

Wood

Wood signs have been popular for a while, but don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. They add a rustic, hipster feel to any event.

Chalkboard

Chalkboards can be a great way to show off a little creativity. While most are in black and white, you can use colored chalk pens to bring some color to the board.

 

Floral Wall

An entire wall of flowers isn’t inexpensive, but it makes a statement. Luckily, depending on the size of your event, you should only need one wall to decorate the space and can use the flowers as inspiration for centerpieces or additional decoration.
