Mint and Tangerine – the makings of a delicious cocktail? No, instead the beginnings of a new Blog Makeover for a client – exciting stuff indeed.
I have just started working on a very exciting makeover for the loveliest graphic designer (can’t tell you any more than that at this stage). As part of my Blog Makeover process I usually put together a mood board for each full makeover I do.
This is such a fun process, I get to collect photos, illustrations, typography, colours and styles and pop them all together in one big mood board. This step, in my little creative process, is so therapeutic – kind of like design meditation and being the magpie/bowerbird that I am I have no problem getting lost in Pinterest for hours on end.
Well, my client’s new identity and colour palette are so cheerful and inspiring that I couldn’t resist sharing just a tiny portion of the imagery I have collected to put in her new Blog’s mood board. Okay, I haven’t included all the colours in the new palette, I just picked out two of my favorites – a fresh mint and tangerine splash – so gorgeous!
Ironically these are two colours that keep coming up in designs I am asked to work on, not surprising as they are so lovely.
