Less is More — Limited colour graphics in design

, , , ,

Can limited colour graphics speak aloud? From designer fashion to wedding invites, Less is More collates about 120 projects that use only a few colours to communicate ideas. Categorised by the number of colour inks applied, these creative solutions or visual experiments represent a refreshing departure from mainstream designs. Whether it is for affordability or visual economy, created to achieve a non-existing colour stock or a tribute to Modernist art, it is a proof that designs can speak more with less, as brand identities, packaging designs, publications and events, large and small.
