How to use a neon color palette
The neon color wheel can be used to liven up your designs, attract attention, and wow your audience. However, for the best results, you should consider what purpose each shade serves. Depending on the goal, creatives like you can apply the entire palette to produce eye-catching, provocative, and energizing designs, or use one bright hue as an accent.
If you opt for bold designs, only mix neon shades that complement each other. Neon colors that go together are:
- yellow and purple,
- blue and orange,
- green and purple,
- pink and orange.
Reduce the brightness with a single neon hue for trendy, yet calmer visuals. For example, mix neon pink with white, light blue, or pale pink. Combine bright orange with olive green, brown, burgundy, white, cream, or golden yellow. Electric blue works well with muted shades of blue, white, silver, coral, and orange.
To find even more unconventional color choices, feel free to match warm and cool hues from these neon color palettes. They will help you speak to audiences that are looking for something original and bold, and interest those who are fond of muted shades and soothing designs.
