I've mentioned before that my career as a designer is the kind of field where you work 100% of the time. There's no such thing as a day off or a time off even. I often get asked by friends what is the process that I take when I get started and/or where all the ideas come from. My response is almost similar to what all other creatives everywhere: Inspirations comes from EVERYTHING!!!
I'd like to share with you a little trick I use to come up with color palettes...
Look at some images you just absolutely love, even if you can't quite understand why and start extracting the colors from it. For example, the image above is a print I came across and LOVED! Not only are the images young and playful, but the color palette is just as "cool and fresh" as the images.
I do this technique pretty much for all things that capture my eye.... here's another....
From this image, I captured (with photoshop dropper) the very faint but lovely pinks and taupe colors of the image.
Next step: Creating a fun project with the colors!
Read next Monday's post about what to do once you find that color inspiration!
Where do you grab your inspiration from?
