"Damn sister, that text is poppin!" said the client to the designer after she'd used the DesignerCandies 3D Neon Lettering Pack...
I've always marvelled at the beauty of bespoke neon signage. Whether heading up shops and storefronts or towering on top of buildings and over walkways, the fusion of functional text and artistic craftsmanship never ceases to amaze me.
It could be said that that quality signage is the epitome of good design.
As the quote goes: “Great design is invisible”. I wonder how often a person looks at 3D neon signage, something that functions perfectly and looks beautiful both day and night, and thinks to themselves “Wow, someone incredibly skilled made that”.
Food for thought. However I'm not here to philosophise, I'm here to give you guys candy. And this piece of candy is probably as sweet as they come.
Based on the Bebas Neue font by Dharma Type, we've created a set of 49 incredible 3D Neon Lettering renders.
Included in this 3D lettering pack:
- Letters A-Z
- Numbers 0-9
- Symbols: @ & ‘ # , $ = ! + – % . ?
Each character is rendered from one angle only. As much as I'd like for us to provide multiple angles for every character, doing so for a freebie of almost 50 included assets would be a major job. Maybe in the future.
As you can see from the previews below, the main feature image and (particularly) the animated GIF at the bottom of the page, you can have some real fun with these assets.
Use hue/saturation masks to change the colour of the neon strip and amplify the glare with some lighting effects and overlays. Overlap the letters and add in shadows to increase the realism then apply curve and level maps to the entire image when finished to blend everything together. Fun fun fun in the
sun sun sun candy shop.
There are 49 individual assets included in this download. Each letter and number is around 400px by 400px in dimension with the symbols a little smaller. Whilst not the largest of renders we've released on site, they're still large enough for you to get a lot of use out of. They're also rendered at 300dpi making them useful in print work too.
As with all our free candies, this download is Uncopyright so you can do whatever you want with it.
