Color affects us in powerful ways. Whether warm and bright or cold and dark, certain tones can impact the way we perceive the messages that surround us. As visual communicators, many of us love experimenting with new color combinations to see where they take our design concepts. To help you out, we’ve handpicked 20 bold palettes from the most popular ones uploaded to Colourlovers.
This month we’re taking a look at how you can use Pantone’s colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Pale blue and pink. Pastels aren’t just for children anymore — this year we’re seeing them used in sophisticated, muted color palettes. Grey help take the sugary feeling out of your palette and give it a classy touch. Pastels are the perfect option when you want to add subtle color without going for the neutrals, grey and brown. Take a look at Apples’ beautiful spring 2016 accessories, to see some examples of how these colors are being used in the area of technology.
Then again, you could take a different direction, using more saturated variations of blue and pink to achieve bold and bright color palettes. Adding black to your palette will create a modern, dramatic look. Pink and blue are present in almost every sunset, so if you have the chance to step outside a moment at sunset, you can find color inspiration in the sky!
The best part? All of these palettes are available for download. Just click on the one/s you like and you’ll be able to grab the swatches in a ton of formats including .ai, .html, .zip, .aco and .ase. You’ll also find the HEX and RGB specs for each color so that you can use it in your next web or print design project. For each palette, make sure to read the details of its Creative Commons license.
