Colors in The City, San Francisco

Finally, I start working on this project months ago! But here it is (drum roll please), the brochure I created for a national client.

Working hand in hand with CP's corporate graphic designer as well as local CP paint contractor, George Irving, I had the awesome opportunity to create color palettes that show San Francisco in its best light.

That's 40 colors, ten neighborhoods and 10 color palettes... seems like a lot, but it was actually difficult to narrow down such a vibrant city into just a few colors.

I made each group versatile so you could use a darker color for the body with a light trim color or vice versa, and each group has an accent color that works beautifully to punctuate the front door, window trim, or a unique architectural detail. Knowing San Franciscans, some of them will use the accent color for their whole house... and I think that would be fabulous!"][/caption]

Next stop, creating color palettes for all the major cities in the country and maybe even a few not-so-famous cities...
