creative trendy neon signage Singapore 2021

Whether you own an office, shop, restaurant or bar, you really want your signage to be as clear and impactful as possible. When looking at options for design, most people tend to imagine how their signs will look during the day, but rarely consider what happens when the light begins to fade and night draws in. The trendy signage should looks great and attractive at both day and night.

According to our 10 years+ signage making experience, our advice is: transform dark and dull signage with different lighting options. Illuminate your indoor or outdoor signage with options like lightboxes, dramatic neon signs or mounted lighting fixtures to improve readability at night and attract more attentions.  

#1 Backlit Displays

Backlit displays make the text and advertisement readable in most settings and lightings. The light will shine out of the acrylic through the sides and produce a halo effect at the back. They are an easy way to creatively display things like your business’s logo or message. Therefore, backlit displays are great for directories in shopping centres, malls, commercial building, hospitals and more.

Certainly, we have observed increasing demand for custom backlit acrylic signage, especially by brands who are looking for a sophisticated touch.

Backlit signage portrays the classy branding of our client, Banyan Tree Spa Marina Bay Sands Singapore.


Neon illuminated signs give a trendy and modern feel to your signage. Think of the neon sign in the window of a café making it look inviting and vibrant. It is undoubtedly the most popular signage in Singapore in 2021. People love taking photos with Instagram-worthy neon lights, and that creates publicity for your business! In addition, neon signs are also cost-effective and come in a wide spectrum of colours.

Businesses can use lightboxes to create vibrant, eye-catching displays. Not to be confused with backlit displays – which consist of typically LED bulbs across the whole back panel, lightboxes feature light across the border of the sign. These are most effective when presenting dramatic visuals and important information. Most importantly, they allow your business to integrate words and images into exciting and informational arrangements. Therefore, they are great in most settings, including retail, restaurant, hospital, commercial buildings and office.

The custom lightbox perfectly displays the logo and brand of Gnome & Bow, the world-renowned leather goods brand from Singapore.

We made this custom acrylic hanging lightbox for Enclave, a newly-opened Balinese-style cafe at Keong Saik, Singapore. It manages to grab attention of the passerby.
