Introducing Our Color of the Season: Poppy Sunset

Laura Busche October 3, 2022 · 2 min read

Picture bright reds melting in the sky as Summer makes its exit. After a couple of years of uncertainty, this Fall is a season to both reminisce and revive. To make sense of the paths we’ve taken and rekindle our motivation to pursue what’s next. Enter our Color of the Season: a blazing sunset red inspired by poppies, timeless symbols of remembrance and new beginnings. 

Poppy Sunset captures the long-missed subtleties that bring us comfort: the gentle crackling of the wind, the hissing of a campfire with friends, and a fiery sun fading into the horizon. Our Color of the Season captures Pop Art’s whimsy and irreverence while playing well with modern, ever-precise UI design. It’s a warm but refreshing shade of red that won’t blend in. Ideal for accents and gradients, Poppy Sunset is the perfect transition between seasons.
