My first “real job” was working at a graphic design firm in downtown Asheville, NC. We preferred the professional look of black. Pretty much everything was black: walls, chairs, tables, promotional materials and dress. I love black too, just by nature of being an art school graduate (SCAD). Seven years ago I came to work at Lark Books, where color is everywhere and, surprisingly, I am enjoying it to this day. Even with all this color around, I still wear black.
Here are a few favorite corners of color in our building that I enjoy. Interestingly, these colors came into play as the art directors set-up a palette for the website—a nice continuation of space both physical and virtual. Here’s a website I love for checking out the palettes other people experience: www.colourlovers.com.
