Modern Image Signworks was started in 1991 by its creator Robert Wilson in orange county California. Robert’s passion for mini trucks and custom cars led him into the automotive graphic design industry. The birthplace of Modern Image was Roberts garage. Out of his garage Robert created and manufactured graphics for magazine such as Trucking, Super Street, Mini Truckin, and Sport Compact Car among others. I was looking for an alternative to expensive painted automotive graphic designs says Robert.Early on Modern Image saw the rapid growing trend of the import tuner world and developed a clientele that included, AEM, Borla, Nitto Tires, Momo, Nissan of North America, Volkswagen of North America, Yokohama Tire and many others. In 1996 Enrico Del Mar joined the Modern Image team. Growing up in Los Angeles during the 80’s Enrico watched the custom import car scene explode and longed for his own custom ride. In the mid 90’s Enrico purchased a Mitsubishi Eclipse that he tricked out and was featured in Super Street Magazine.
Robert and Enrico would go on to become pioneers in the vehicle graphics industry. Fresh designs year after year have earned us a reputation as a trend setter. We like to stay one step ahead and give customers what they might see at other shops in a few months. The use of state of the art computer software, scanners, and digital cutters has kept Modern Image on the cutting edge of the graphic design industry.
