30 Creative Easter Color Palettes for Graphic Designers

April 7, 2014

Quick, what colors define Easter? If you’re like most of the rest of the universe, you immediately thought of pastels. Pastel pink, green, blue, purple and yellow represent innocence and new birth: Springtime bringing the world to life. And though pastel color palettes are widely associated with Easter, limiting your Easter designs to pastels alone can quickly become boring. Moreover, overusing pastels can make your Easter marketing materials look just like everyone else’s. If you want to stand out this Easter, it’s a good idea to take some risks by experimenting with creative Easter color palettes. Here are 30 for your inspiration.
