June 12, 2014

What colors define summer? Blues skies? Turquoise waters? Cream sandy beaches? How about red berries, pink lemonade and green grass? Summer is one of the most vibrant seasons for color, which makes picking a unique and compelling color scheme for graphic designs a challenge. Capturing the essence of your message with summer hues takes more than identifying the colors of summer; you have to understand how each color, and each hue, impacts emotions; then, what color combinations fulfill themes. For your inspiration, here are 30 summer color palettes for graphic design.
