Our 2019 Creative Trends Report identified a surge in bright hue designs, from the glowing neon lights of Yesterday’s Tomorrow to the dynamic rainbow spectrum in our Prism trend. In addition, we also found the most popular colors of the year: UFO Green, Plastic Pink, and Proton Purple. These intense hues hint at our tech-crazy society and love of all things energetic. Pastel and muted tones take the back seat this year as neon palettes own the color spotlight.
We drew inspiration for each of these neon color combinations from Shutterstock images, and each comes with universal hex codes that you can apply to anything from eye-catching web designs to vibrant party invitations. You can apply the entire palette to a design for an electrifying refresh, or tone down the vibrancy by applying a single hue as an accent.
