Your images are impressive as artwork, but I find them less impressive as text. Most are hardly readable.

Horses for courses as they say!

John, you are right. The readability is not the main key. The main goal - overall impression, even when the text is full abracadabra )))

The same lettering, but different impressions due to different background and colors.

I am glad for Affinity team support, as they choose my work to be displayed on their Instagram - AFFINITY INSTAGRAM

I don’t know if it’s just me but I think the highlight ellipses would look better if they were blurred a little towards the edges.
The effects are great – a kind of ‘metallic jelly’ – but I think they are a little bit spoilt by the highlights.
Maybe someone else in the forums has some good advice on this as I’m not an expert.

I test (earlier) some adjustments and make these ovals blurred a bit - it gives shiny look, and it is also look nice, but then switch blur off ))) But actually there a lot of FAKES here, and my goal is the main impression. Also there a lot of endless combinations - turn this ON, then turn this OFF and so on ))) So i decide to make STOP and release it to public :)

This time i decide to reproduce NEON effect in Affinity Designer. All elements are from vector. Only background is a bitmap. I found interesting thing. My file dimension is 1080px square. And after applying intensive FX - some image areas looks harsh. What i found to solve this issue - during export i enter resolution 3240px square - 3x per side bigger. And then open exported image and downscale it back to 1080 px square as i need. And it looks MUCH better :)
.
P.S. I use lanczos separable

Here is my example, that illustrates, what i was talking in previous ENGINE post. This is very useful and unique feature ))) Thank you, Affinity team !

P.S. Click to picture (you see just big thumbnail in my post) and look to it at 100% zoom to evaluate actual difference.
