Colour Swatches

When looking at colour association at college we where asked to come up with four colour schemes which we associate with the following words:

Aggression
Old-fashioned
Aromatic
Luxurious

Here’s what I came up with…

Aggression
aggression
The reason I chose these colours where because I think they clash with each other and they are quite bright and offensive to the eye.

Old-fashioned
oldfashioned
The reason I chose these colours was because the pastel, brown colours make me think of old sepia photographs, they are fairly low contrast which makes it look very calm and gentle.

Aromatic
aromatic
The thinking behind this colour scheme was using bright Mediterranean/spicey colours. I also wanted to add quite a bit of green to balance the reds and oranges to calm it down and make it feel kinda fresh.

Luxurious
luxorious
I wanted the Luxurious colours to look kinda velvety so I used mainly red and purple tones but I also kept some white in there to give a kind of purity and keep the colours looking quite clean.
