We’ve finally crossed over the Spring Equinox and are looking at longer, sunnier days on the horizon. These days you might be spending more time at home than usual and looking to revamp or launch a new project or business. Spring can bring on a strong desire to start something new, so we thought we’d provide you with some spring color palette inspiration to help you bring your designs to life. HEX codes are included!
1. Robin-egg blues
The birds are finally chirping! Outside, spring brings a beautiful mix of the dry earthy colors of winter with pops of life and color in hidden places. Use the muted, earthy hues to ground your designs and pops of blue or green to bring in some personality.
2. Spring break
Inspired by the vibrant, tropical colors we’re often exposed to on spring break after a drought of color from winter, this palette brings in rich and saturated hues.
3. It’s all in bloom
Take inspiration from the landscape around you coming into bloom. Notice the color of the sky, greenery, and flowers. Keep your colors in the same tone. Here we have muted colors with cool undertones paired with a soft grey.
4. Rainy day jazz
The lush rain of springs is what brings everything back to life! We love this soft lavender purple as a background, layered with the jazzy, festive colors of the season on minimal text in a logo.
5. A moment in time
Everyone flocks to the cherry blossoms in spring. These are some of the most memorable early spring days. Something about the cool blue sky background with bright pink blossoms just encourages a sense of relief.
6. Let’s bake bread
Spring is a transition season, there’s still lots of room for the warm tones of winter. We love the cozy colors that come with all the winter baking. These kinds of color schemes look great on vintage-style logos.
7. Spring fling!
Spring colors are whimsical and joyous! If you like lots of color, now is the time to draw from this season’s playful varieties and carefully layer them. Remember to think about complementary colors and the use of contrast when combining colors.
8. Budding with life
It’s fun to play with monochromatic color schemes. Take one spring color and break out its various hues and layer them to make a professional, and streamlined looking logo.
9. Splish splash
Balancing blacks and greys with bright, pastel hues is the ultimate way to go when using a spring color palette. The contrast created when using these colors will make for a highly visible, perfectly legible, standout logo indeed!
10. April showers
Cool colors are a spring-staple. But you can be playful by using brighter tones as a background and darker colors to ground your design.
11. Warm and fuzzies
Ok, we just couldn’t resist this adorably cute picture. We love the warm and cozy tones coming off of this cute little guy, and see them reflected well in an organic, rustic themed logo.
12. Easter egg hunt
We love the pastel colors of easter eggs. Layer them for a soft, romantic feel in your logo.
