Color Inspiration | Island Tropical

Before we start on any project big or small, we dive into planning each of the 7 (yes seven!) design elements. Color is one of the design elements that sets the stage for projects. Every color has it’s own story and mood on it’s own. Combining multiple colors together we are able to visually tell a more complex story and begin to bring projects to life!

The Project

A fellow milspouse and one of our custom design is about to rebrand her Instagram to share her inspirational words. We created highlight covers and editable text templates for her to easily share her beautiful words. She has a bright and sunny personality and is inspired by the island of Hawaii. We used calming blues and teals as a base for the palette and built it out from there with navy. To provide a pop of excitement and fun we added in a bright pineapple gold!

The Color Pallete

Hi, I’m Tara, the Brand Strategist +
Designer of Olive Fox Design!

I use strategy-based design to help you and your customers fall in love with your business. My formula isn’t rocket science but my extensive background in accounting does infuse a bit of nerdery, data-obsession, and color-coded spreadsheets to deliver a unique brand identity and strategy. And a little extra fluff from my kitty Willow doesn’t hurt either ;)
