The first time that Ben used Neon Font was in 2015, in Coney Island for the ‘Riot’ wall. Since then the font has always been a favorite for fans as it is bold and colour, reminiscent of neon lights and the feel of the 70s, at least that what it is for Ben. Since Coney Island to now the font has not been widely used, it has been in development and reworked various times to the point where it can now be released.
