Colour Inspiration

Do you ever have days where the same colour keeps popping out at you everywhere? This happens to me often, once I have noticed said colour, I will keep seeing it everywhere – and I mean everywhere: TV ads, magazines, shop windows, business cards etc etc.

This week it has been the turn of an old favourite – purple. A dark and moody colour, full of mystery and intrigue. A colour you can almost touch and smell with your eyes.

As a tribute to the lingering heavy scent of purple, I have put together a mini collection of some of my favourite purple pics of the week.

Bardot Ice Cream


At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking that Bardot is a naughty underwear store – the shop front with its frosted windows and suggestive signage doesn’t scream traditional ice cream parlor, instead it hints at a much more saucy experience. (Shop designed by award-winner architect Ana Henton)

“At Bardot, we don’t sell ice cream bars. We sell Love. On a stick.”

The luscious red lips and retro inspired graphic patterns set this store apart. Bardot has turned the humble ice cream bar into a sensual fashion experience.

Bardot’s clever branding is thanks to Landor Associates (a design agency in San Francisco). Landor have managed to turn a once obscure manufacturer, formally known as “Advanced Ice Cream Technologies”, into one of the sexiest ice ream vendors in the USA – Bardot.

With flavors including “Honey I’m Home”, “French Kiss”, “Acapulco Love” and “The Forbidden Fruit” one can easily see why these gorgeous ice cream bars are such a hit – what’s even better is the packaging is specially made to keep the bars chilled for up to eight hours – just enough time to set the mood?

The branding for Bardot has gone on to win Landor Associates numerous design awards including a Silver Clio and bronze Lion at Cannes.
