Looking for colour inspiration? If you’re like me, you love to use colour in your artwork. Colour can really bring a design to life and each colour combination can evoke a different reaction from your audience. But sometimes, it can be difficult to come up with just the right colour combination, and you find you need a little bit of colour inspiration help. Let me introduce you to a site you may, or may not, have heard of: Design Seeds.

Nature Brights - Design Seeds

If you’re on Pinterest, you’ve likely seen a ton of pins that look rather like the picture above (in fact, you may have even seen this one!). Many of those pins came from Design Seeds’ website. Design Seeds are a type of colour journal; they are based on the concept of design notebook sketches that any artist/designer may make when planning out a new project only modernized. I love Design Seeds. I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to colour inspiration and most of the pins come from Design Seeds.

I love looking at Design Seeds for colour inspiration, not just becasue they show such gorgeous colours, but because of how they show colours. They first give you an image and then they break that image down for you to show you what colours are behind it. This can be really helpful when it comes to planning colour combos because you can get a better idea of how they look together. Plus, often times you find colour combinations you might not have though of otherwise but Design Seeds has given you proof that those colours really can look great together.

So, whether you struggle with how best to combine colours or just need some fresh ideas, give Design Seeds a look and see if they can’t help get your creative mind working again!
