In today’s Photoshop tutorial I’m going to take you through the process of creating a vivid 80s style neon chrome text effect. This ultra rad style uses the most intense RGB colours available to create the brightest, most fluorescent effect possible that smoothly transitions through a variety of hues. We’ll use Photoshop layer styles to create the foundation of the effect, then add the vibrant colours with a combination of gradient tools. Some subtle texturing helps to add some intricate details to the chrome text surface, then the artwork is finished off with a complementary 80s inspired tiger stripe background.
