Colour to brighten your life. Greenery

Green is a colour of vibrancy and power. It’s a symbol of growth and renewal, of endurance and natural wisdom. If you’ve been looking for a colour theme to freshen your business or brighten your home, look no further than green.

Greenery is a natural neutral too; a colour to escape the grind of modern life and travel back to our roots, a colour of pause and reconnection. Green awakens a deeper truth inside us, a raw reality. Delve within and green writes us an unflinching poetry of our true self and our relationship with our wild and beautiful mother earth.

The official Pantone Colour of the Year is a zesty yellow-green. Pantone are colour specialists and they select symbolic colours every year that represent our global culture and the changing moods and attitudes of our busy lives. 2017’s selection is fresh and restorative, a cool change to revitalize the spirit.

Join us at RapidStudio and get a dose of greenery into your life. We are celebrating the green theme of 2017 and have incorporated rejuvenating shades of green into many of our products, including these cards, mugs, clocks and photobooks.

Enjoy these inspirational quotes that highlight the richness and beauty of all things green.

“This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.” - Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute executive director told Time 

"Think succulents, matcha tea and freshly cut grass in springtime." Oprah

"Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape." Design Bloom

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).
