Neon Glow

Neon is a colorless, odorless gas that you’ve likely seen light up electric signs across the streets of Las Vegas, Japan, and Hong Kong, and can best be described as extremely luminescent versions of primary and secondary colors. Fun fact: The gas element neon actually only produces a red-orange color, while other colors are created by different noble gases, but the word “neon” can broadly apply to a wide range of fluorescent and ultra-bright colors. Whether you’re creating an effect for a cyberpunk future, or an exciting city skyscape, our references are here to brighten up your inspiration!
