Color Scheme Inspiration – Good Morning!

Color Scheme Inspiration – Good Morning!

I apologize for the delayed announcement of results. This was originally slated for launch at the beginning of the past weekend. Server issues (that are hopefully now resolved) kept us delayed.
– Zach

This round of inspiration is provided by the community and A.M. hours. These are just ten great representatives of the palettes posted for our “Good Morning!” color scheme contest.

Almost all photos below are all found via Flickr (follow image links for author info). Color schemes are available to download through COLOURlovers.

A League All His Own

This was hands down the most unique interpretation of “Good Morning!” that this contest saw submitted. I’m still not entirely sure what I’m looking at with your inspiration image but Joël Cox, you deserve some recognition.


Wake Up!

Even though this contest has ended, we’d still love to see you get involved with creating your own color schemes. If you make a particularly awesome one, post it to our official Colourlovers group! Your palette may end up being a starting point for future color scheme posts. You’ll even be featured front and center for your stroke of genius.

Note to contest winners: You should receive an email notifying your of your victory by the end of the day. If you haven’t received a contact from me by tomorrow and you’re in the top five, get in touch to claim your business cards from BizCard.

    Deals again plunged which are 1990’s towards the burberry store unfortunately customers rapidly covered again which are late 2000’s on top of that certain celebrities were seen wearing them. Those days, in a position quite possibly purchase consumers in which are really trying to choose the actual traditional Wayfarer models.
