Introducing Our Color of the Season: Orchid Funk

Laura Busche January 29, 2024 · 2 min read

Here’s a vibrant purple that demands attention, challenges norms, and celebrates the spirit of innovation. Introducing Orchid Funk, our new Color of the Season. 

Layered with grain and dust, Orchid Funk evokes the gritty energy of 70s album covers – a reminder of that raw, unfiltered creativity that pushes boundaries. Laid flat against 90s-00s graphics, it yells Y2K – a nod to a time when digital design was just finding its feet, bold and unapologetic. Among soft gradients, Orchid Funk injects warmth.

When placed next to black, Orchid Funk creates a surreal, futuristic atmosphere. Pair it with bright hues, and it’s suddenly giving carnivals – a spectacle of joy and uninhibited expression. It’s a color that’s equally at home in retro designs as it is in forward-thinking projects.

Orchid Funk is a playful purple for unusual times, a color that doesn’t just sit quietly. And neither should you.

Featuring Eclectic Boho Retro Summer Graphics by Laras Wonderland, Halftone dot collage creator by LaVika, Wubble 2.0 3D Chrome Font Set by Sam Parrett, Gush – Tropic Font by Sans & Sons, Neon Textures by NKate, Heroxy Display Font by Kulokale, and Geska Rolling – Groovy Retro Font by Kulokale.
