design seeds colour palettes

This is the kind of website that makes me fall in love with colour all over again! I am totally in my happy place with every blog post that Jessica (design seeds) shares. I have even taken some of her colour palettes and created a montage of them along my office wall. [Huge sigh of contentment]. Thanks Jessica!

From Jessica’s website:

my love (okay…passion) for color sprouted at a very young age. i played with color markers (my favorite colors of course) as action figures and loved melting crayolas into different hue sculptures. we would go to the detroit auto show every year, and i would cut up all the brochures and create my first mood boards by collaging the images to cover my bedroom door. fast forward decades later…having worked as a car designer, shoe designer, color & material specialist and forecaster (hmm…could see that all coming from my earliest days)…my love of color was actualized through my biggest joy of life … my daughter’s name {Ruby Joy}.

beginning in art school (and throughout my design career), i have journaled color palettes and inspiration. the earliest of my journals were compiled in a sketchbook with pantone chips and dymo label callouts…the design seed blog is a modern interpretation of my original journals. it is my pleasure to share with you my journey and inspiration as i continuously track and forecast emerging colors and palette combinations.
