Thursday Trend Watch: Neon Lights
Anyone not yet familiar with Netflix Original series ‘Stranger Things’ (seriously, where have you been?), may not be aware with the rather unexpected fact that all things 80’s are making a flashy comeback. One of trends making a come back that arguably is the most unmissable being neon, following in the footsteps of maximalism (the so-called philosophy that ‘more is more’), the blunt response to the more commonly acknowledged minimalism.
Luckily neon’s re-emergence isn’t gracing leg warmers or spandex biker shorts this time around (yes, put those acid-wash jeans down). Think more a ‘subtle’ dash rather than full blown neon blocking. Added to a black background neon takes on a less rave-inspired aesthetic and becomes distinctly more sophisticated and sexy. One can always look to the natural world for the ultimate neon inspiration, combining both the energy and refinement this fluorescent palette can offer.
If you have your own neon illustrations or photographs, show them of on Adobe Stock. Submit your assets via our Contributor Portal. If you’re using Lightroom CC or Bridge CC to edit, you can upload them directly form the application!
