Happy Saturday & Signature Colors

 

My signature colors are green and pink, lime and purple, fuchsia and chartreuse. You get it. Any combo of the tones of yellow-green and purple-pink sends my spirits soaring. I only like the clear crispness of tones (jewel tones), not shades so much and rarely ever tints (pastels). I'm a winter so that figures.

Identifying and using signature colors can help establish your brand among customers and potential customers. It's important because it can be synonymous with consistent quality and service. It can also identify your products wherever potential customers happen to run across them. Using signature colors and motifs give the impression that attention to detail is important to you.

What are your signature colors? I can trace my love for mine all the way back to childhood, especially the green. In art class, I made a papier mache giraffe and painted it green with yellow spots. I also made a pottery bowl and painted the outside green and the inside yellow. Along the way, I became enraptured with fuchsia, the complimentary color of green.

If you haven't yet done so, try to identify the 2-3 colors that make you the most happy and begin to use them to consolidate and grow your business.

How To Start A New Design Project

Coffee, Cake, Creating on a rainy, thunderstorm day. Don't have the fat piece of cake, like the lady in the image and don't feel like taking out the box of chocolate cake mix either. I do have some chocolate chip pecan cookies.

Do you use a planner journal with all of those cute accessories? I don't but I sure need to. They are SO popular! I do have a creative notebook but a planner would help me get more done, I'm sure. It would be fun to use those stickers, paper clips, Washi tape and more.

I've decided to design a downloadable planner set for sale. It will be based on my printable artwork: "I Am Positive-Minded. I Attract Health, Wealth & Love." To help me get started, I ordered a pretty Heidi Swapp planner set to use as inspiration.
 
Find the Heidi Swapp planner kit that I ordered from HSN. There's even an HSN vid on how to use it: https://ishort.ink/YoZt

TAKEAWAYS: 
  • Look around at what others are doing to get inspiration for new products.
  • Design something that you need and will use yourself. You can market it much better.
  • Use the products and kits of others to coordinate your own. 
  • Give credit whenever someone else inspires you.
 
 
HAPPY CREATIVE TUESDAY!!!🖤⚡️🖤
