Pretty in Pink
Did you know the color pink takes its name from the flowers called Pinks, members of the genus Dianthus? Or that in most European languages, pink is called rose or rosa, after the rose flower? Or that Pink was first used as a color name in the late 17th century? No matter how well you know your pink trivia, one fact will always remain true, from blush to rose to magenta…it’s hard to not feel pretty in pink.
When designing with pink, keep in mind: Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming. Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingos) and tenderness (pastel pinks). Multiple shades of pink and light purple or other pastels used together maintain the soft, delicate, and playful nature of pink. Add strength with darker shades of pinks and purple and burgundy.
