VINTAGE COLOUR PALETTES

Research

Since my piece is about a process that took place in the past, I have decided to research complimentary vintage and retro colour palettes. It seems like every graphic designer is using retro inspired colours, since hipster became the new black. There seems to be a pattern of analogous muted colours, the usual suspects seem to be a tangerine or muted burnt orange, subdued teal, charcoals, off-creamy white.  I like the idea of using something similar to the Black Lacquer, instead of the average black.  Using vintage inspired colours will transport my piece into the historical past, while its trendy mode will root my piece in the present.
