Although the art of Andy Gilmore from Rochester, NY was not new to me I just re-discovered it today. It’s not often that you see something like this. His colour schemes and minimalistic geometric approach are very inspiring and unique. Make sure to visit his portfolio at birdbrid.com for more great designs. There’s plenty!

Colours tell a lot about someone’s personality. So in an effort to learn a bit more about my favourite designers and bloggers I started a 1-question mass interview to ask them what their favourite colour is. Although the colours they chose are very different these 40 creative minds have one thing in common. They are at the top of their game and I respect them deeply for their contributions to the design community. So please visit their websites/blogs and discover outstanding articles, free high quality resources and gorgeous designs.
As a bonus I made an A2 poster containing all the favourite colours with the respective names for you to download as pdf for free. All you need to do is take it to your local print shop or simply use your inkjet at home to print it.
