Starting Off…All the Colors

Did you see that Pantone announced the 2020 Color of the Year?!
Drumroll please….it’s Classic Blue. I called it back in October when the Spring 2020 Palette was announced. But maybe Beck knew it was happening last year since he put a ton of Classic Blue in this video.

What does that mean for graphic design? Not a ton honestly. But if you’re a maker or business owner who is hoping to ride the wave of promotion for this color in the next year, you could leverage using this color in your product line or promotions. (#pantonecoty2020)

Color Factory

The CreativeMornings/Richmond team and I visited Color Factory NYC this past weekend to get inspiration for the monthly events we plan.

We had a great time hanging out together and being inspired by the sights and sounds of this multi-sensory experience and the city all decked out for the holidays.

Thanks for reading and have a great rest of 2019!
