Color Wheel: Red Hot

Is it really a surprise that today's Color Wheel post is all about RED??!!

Whether I am taking inspiration from the Chinese New Year this week, or from My Trend Spotting at ALT Summit, and not to mention that Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

It is all about Red.

So, I think that red is my new favorite color (ok, so this kind of changes on a weekly basis..) Luckily, that's ok in my business, right?

So with these different leading my thoughts on how to look at the color red, and thinking of how I to translate that into color palettes for my work (and this post) there are a few combinations for each event that scream out at me.
