Hi, hello! Happy New Year! I hope 2011 is treating you kindly so far!
I don't normally do this, but a few days ago, on a whim, I looked up Pantone's color forecast for this coming spring and found it too cheery to not share with you all today. Isn't it an uplifting, re-energizing palette? I know I can sure use a little of that now that the holidays have passed and left me in a chilly, worn-out fog.
I saw a lot of these colors while searching through the team's spring offerings. I have to ask, as artists/designers, how much do a season's projected trends influence your designs? Personally, I don't pay much attention (I'm not that organized!), and just do what feels right but I can certainly see the value of tapping into "what's hot."
I hope this has added some pep to your step! --katie :D
