How to incorporate neon elements

Since neon colors are super bright, and often look best on darker backgrounds, there are som common tricks that designers use. Some of these are…

  • Use bright colors sparingly
  • Use neon colors for highlighting elements (icons, buttons, graphs, special numbers)
  • Create engaging illustrations with the bright colors and keep other elements dark
  • Use a glow shadow on the neon elements (the shadow color is the same as the element, and then add blur and spread)
  • Use gradients between different shades of one color, or between different ones
