Eye-catching, bold and vibrant, fluorescent neon colours can add such interest to your projects. But how can we use neon colours on our projects without looking like we've gone way back to the 80s?
1. Focus on ONE main neon colour.
The use of various shades of one striking neon colour can make a great impact as seen in guest designer Ujjwal Gupta's MDF monogram.

2. Add a little glitter to your mix.
Glitter is a great way to add neon to your project because we all know that glitter makes everything look better! *winks* Check out the impact of a graphic glittered neon card as shared by guest designer Alice Wertz.

Using neon colours with neutrals is a way to tone down the brightness of the bold colours and bring overall balance to your project as seen in this lovely layout by guest designer Michelle Hernandez.

5. Add neon in small doses.

6. Use neon as an accent.
