Neon Backgrounds for Desktop Publishing Projects
Neon is interesting because it can mean a lot of things from a design perspective. Neon itself was popularized in physical, light signs that were commercialized in the early 1900's and have only gotten more popular since. Ranging from sports memorabilia or the classic "OPEN" sign, neon lights have opened the door to a lot of design applications.
In the most traditional sense, neon designs feature bright colors (most often red, white, and blue) in a fashion that mimics the light signs that inspired them. There is also lots of room for creative interpretation since digital image editing software like Photoshop allows for a lot of different colors and blends to be creating making more complex and intricate designs easy and less constrained to the rigid glass tube design of neon signs.
Another way of looking at is neon colors which are often very bright primary and secondary colors which are common at raves, night clubs, and UV reactive paints. While this isn't true to the source material it is often widely accepted as a form of neon.
The 5 neon backgrounds -or- neon colored backgrounds provided cover these two interpretations, sometimes intersecting, so I hope you find something that you like and that you can use in your Desktop Publishing project(s) in the future!
