Style, Substance and Color: Major Trends and Directions
In this complex and information-laden world, there is a multiplicity of resources that inform color and design directions. More than ever before it is urgent to be aware of future trends as consumers are seeking distinctive styling and considerable substance. Most importantly, colors and combinations must be appealing, evocative, transformative and “on-target”. The following themes explain the major trends and the sources of inspiration.
Welcome to Day 9: Eccentricities
There is always room for an eccentric palette with a personality that defies the established “rule book” of design and color, bringing with it a sense of adventure, wit, experimentation and discovery. It’s “tongue in cheek” in attitude and highly original in color juxtapositioning and cleverly conceived in evocative combinations – a flash of neon green radiates off of zesty lemon or nectarine combines with a daredevil Skydiver blue. Fudgesickle brown is rendered sweeter with Strawberry Ice. A warm red coexists with its cooler counterpart, while black and/or white can be drawn into any combination.
Here are some fine art and poster/print options from The Studio that showcase this Color Palette. To inquire about pricing/art options contact The Studio.
**All of us at The Studio thought it would be fun to introduce the nine color palettes that Pantone has offered as new and fresh color combinations for 2014, while highlighting the color combination themes which explain the major trends and the sources of inspiration.
