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

PANTONE 15-0343


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

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

The RapidStudio team has brainstormed and scoured the internet for the best ideas for keeping kids busy and engaged through this time. 




Usually when we have family time we're expecting it, summer holidays, trips planned, activities scheduled, friends visiting.

It's normal for parents to feel nervous about this unplanned time for kids at home amidst school closures and social distancing recommendations to ‘flatten the curve’ of coronavirus.

Principles – Routine and Prioritising Education Firstly, experts recommend acknowledging how stressful the situation is and that that stress is normal.
