Color of the Week, Week #1

Sometimes we all get stuck in a rut, using the same colors, same fonts, and same style over and over again. There’s no problem with defining your signature style, but experimenting with a little variety can help get you thinking differently & creatively!

Every week I’m going to post a color of the week. A color I wouldn’t normally use. Inspired by the season, weather, fashion trends, etc. I’ll challenge myself to integrate it into a new project, and I encourage you to do the same!

This week’s color is Pantone 441 U. This color reminds me of the weather here in New York right now. It should be winter, and there have been some very cold days, but there is still too much warmth for the streets to be covered with snow. This gray has soft green/blue undertones—that bit of warmth and color preventing winter from truly setting in.
