Don't Forget the Green Bug

March 16, 2019

Don't forget the "Green Bug".   I was sitting in a cafe patio overlooking a fairly busy 6 lane divided road.  Cars were busily moving in both directions.  Almost all were white, black grey or silver.  Occasionally a red or blue would pass... then I saw it.  The Lime Green Bug (Volkswagen).  It was quite a distance away as it captured my full attention, a drifting green lime peel in the ebb & flow of the traffic stream, then floating by in slow motion.  It was all a little surreal.  The Green Bug was the most important focus in the whole moving landscape. ​

 

​I would never consider driving a Green Bug, or anything like it (well... maybe a Lava Orange Porsche GT3 RS !!!) but I will always enjoy seeing the occasional color surprise ... and in the appropriate setting, so will your client.

Color preference.  You've had it since you were a child.  It will probably mature with years, widen in scope but probably always retain original preferential residue.  As a designer, it's important that personal preferences remain under conscious control.  A client's color preferences blended with your intuitive creativity will point color in the proper direction... if you let it.  Developing a color palette is very similar to diverse community of children... different ages, colors, sizes, desires, talents and all the other minute details community.  Letting them grow, develop & find their place in your palette will usually result in the most stimulating & beautiful solution.
