Brainstorms & Sketches
Good design should always have a reason for its rhyme, so the exploration of colour is no different! One of my favourite places to find inspiration for my swatch selection is with the use of Color Psychology. While we all have our own preference of what the best combinations are, it's a proven science that they can affect our mood, if even for a second.
For this particular scheme, I used the Nova Scotian flag as the source of inspiration. The contrasting blue & yellow make for an eye-popping combination that we're used to as Soctians.
