When it comes to design, colour is one of the most important tools in our arsenal. Choosing the right colour sets the mood for the design and gives a great layout that final touch. Over the last 12 months I’ve asked 35 of my favourite designers and bloggers one simple question: What’s your favourite colour? Although, as everyone will tell you, there’s nothing simple about the question. It’s really hard to find that single colour to identify with. Chances are that some of these answers are already out of date, they do however reflect the state of mind of the interviewee at the time of sending me their answer.

It’s been a long time coming, 18 months to be precise, Fudgegraphics presents itself with a shiny new look. Those following me on Twitter or checking what I’m up to on Dribbble will know that I’ve been working on this new design for quite a while now. As every designer will tell you: You Are Your Worst Client! I knew that, which is why I never predicted an exact release date. It would be ready when it’s ready. That time is now.
It’s this time of year again. Everything slows down and you spend the days eating and drinking with your loved ones.
