Color Palettes (6/18/21)

It’s June, and it’s Pride month!

As a queer designer, I wanted to do a color palette this month with a theme centered around some Pride colors.

These palettes are inspired by the purples in the Non-Binary flag, the pinks of the Lesbian flag, the soft pink/blues of the Transgender flag, and the bold pink/blues of the Bisexual flag.

Like many things, a lot of the celebrations normally held were cancelled or done differently last year, so it is exciting to celebrate this year, whether it’s in-person again or still distanced.

(If you haven’t before read about the history of why Pride is typically celebrated in June in the US, check out the Gay Pride Wiki page for a brief rundown - it also includes some information for a few other countries)
