Colours make life worth living
But at least – I bet you’d agree with me when I say that – they make it more enjoyable and fun.
The other day after dinner we got cozy on our couch with my husband and had a Netflix night. Nothing special. A regular family evening you could say, but it got me thinking how much changed since my childhood.
What does it have to do with colours?
Just bear with me a second.
I still remember that time of black and white TV shows and cartoons. Not that they weren’t produced in colour. You see, our old TV back then wasn’t capable yet to receive it that way. It was a BIG day in my life, when my father finally bought us our first colour TV. He was (and is still) my hero!
For me as a kid it was so exciting and a whole new perspective.
Now, imagine a world without colours
It would be dreadful!
The first few photographs of me are all in black and white. My uncle took them with his old camera and developed them in his shed in the backyard. So I was told.
They are a reminder of good old times. And I like to take a look at them from time to time but then I let my imagination run wild and colour them now in my head. I can’t help it, that way they simply look better!
I admit, I can’t even picture it what it would like not having colours around us.
To talk shop a bit, I hope you don’t mind: colours are not only an essential part of branding and website design, but are also an integral part of our lives.
Our skin has a certain colour, our everyday objects, our immediate surroundings, the food we eat, nature around us: we experience the whole world in colours.
Everyone has an immediate and instinctive emotive connection to them.
As an act of paying tribute to these small everyday wonders we call colours, I present you with some
