Wondering if great color palettes can be found outside of nature? Of course.
Susan says, “A color palette of a beautifully restored motorcycle has all the right colors for most any presentation. You might suppose that the colors used to decorate this burly motorcycle might be overpowering or in-your-face, but these pleasing and muted colors have no such baggage. The three green colors on the left could be used for a cool monochromatic palette. The three middle colors would support a sophisticated corporate presentation. In either scheme try pulling in the more saturated green and brown colors on the left and right for emphasis and your design will pop.
Playing with Color Ideas is Fun and Freeing.
If you avoid design because you think you haven’t got the eye for it, breaking away from Powerpoint pre-selected colors and picking your own is a great way to get started. Help yourself to this idea and see where it takes you. Check out last week’s blog, Use Nature to Select your Presentation Color Palette, for helping in setting up your own palette in powerpoint”
Color as a Starting Point
Lucia says, “A photo often begins with color. It’s what grabs my eye. Here, it became the focus of my attention. I remember trying out different angles in capturing this scene, because I wanted to fill the frame with as much of this color combination as possible.
Have Fun with Color Combinations
Just as color is often the starting point for capturing a photo, it can also be at the heart of your presentation design. And a photo can get you started. As Susan suggested, look at a photo for color combination ideas and see what happens. It could be fun.”
