It might seem like a throwback to the 80’s or the 90’s, but neon is super trendy right now. From vectors, to type, and so much more, everything is going fluorescent and colorful.

So switch off MTV, put down your boombox, and grab Einstein, because we are looking through some of the best neon designs in Envato Elements.

1. Neon Type 3

Just like the ‘Abstract ABC’, this neon type isn’t a font. However, the download provides you with a file of numbers and letters that can all be edited and placed where you wish in a Photoshop document. It is an easy way to get this effect, and will save you the time and effort of fiddling with another way. Also look how cool it is!

A super fun kit straight from Envato Elements. This lets you create a number of different neon monsters, in a variation of ways, for whatever you need.
