It’s having a moment… Millennial Pink… My favourite colour has been given a name, it’s trending, it’s the ‘go to’ colour for everything now….
A soft, blush, chalky muted pink that will go well with dark teal walls or a softer dove grey, home interior magazines and Instagram feeds are going crazy for this popular colour. Big name brands such as Le Creuset and Kitchenaid both have newly launched products in the colour, John Lewis has called 2017 ‘the year of Millennial Pink’…
I’m not sure what to think about this!! Have I fallen for a big marketing plot or can I think for myself!? I’ve been happy to see more pink things recently because I’m a big fan, but (tongue in cheek) I am waaay ahead of the trends, I’ve used the colour for my branding for a while now, but not because it’s cool… because I like it, and that’s the important thing to think about when we’re talking ‘trends’ … do what you like because YOU like it!! It is really hard to stop yourself from being influenced by social media but stick to what feels right, don’t compare yourself to others and be yourself. OK rant over!
Here are some images of the Brochure and logo I designed for the Midsummer Arts Festival. The design was multimedia with a handpainted moon logo and handdrawn map. It was used online and in various different flyers, roadsigns and posters advertising the event. The brochure of events was folded with a large map inside and listed the events over the weekend. It was a labour of love and I wouldn’t normally go to this level of detail for a brochure design!!
