I'm trying to create a logo using neumorphism learned from this video. After hours of tweaking I still couldn't get it right.

I know there's something wrong but couldn't know if that's with the color, or the strokes in my logo or something else, I couldn't make it look as expected. Here's the figma link. How do I improve it?

Edit: Do you think this one is better?

If you look at other neumorphism examples you should quickly notice a few key details:

  • outer highlight and shadow are subtle and have low contrast compared to the background. You could fix yours by just making them transparent.
  • the light and shadow are also very soft, you need to increase the blur on yours.

Check also the example below:

  • I did not read the whole linked article, but "neumorphism" is a clearly a play on "skeuomorphism" which means, basically "pretend this is an actual artifact." So the question becomes "what are we creating the illusion of?" From what I can tell, the answer looks like "embossed, pressed card stock" i.e. paper sculpture. Many of the key logos and calls to action though are in opposition to the paper stock: they are applied decals in the metaphor.

  • @Yorik what's your point?

Like Luciano said, your shadow and highlight on the main element are too extreme.

Inside on the letters, the problem is in the colors. The highlight should be a lighter shade of the object, while the shadow should be a darker shade of whatever is beneath it. I would also recommend blurring them a bit more
