THINKING ABOUT COLOR
we always talk to our students in blogshop about how important color is. and how you should start looking around at what colors you are drawn to. not only will this help you define yourself, but it’s a great exercise when you are trying to form a brand…
one / two
for instance. i’m a fan of the bright. i live for mustard yellow, magenta, teal & gold. i find my eyes being drawn to those colors 54 times a day. when i am outside, on pinterest, browsing the internet… so naturally, when I’m designing, those colors come to mind immediately and are seen on this blog all the time. after a while, i started getting comments like “this is so designlovefest!” or “bri would love this!” and that’s because they start to get a sense of who i am and what my brand is all about.
look in your closet, look at your home decor, look in your purse. what colors do you see? and what do they say about you?
