DID YOU KNOW? Rather than get their bright colors from pigments like paint or “smoke bombs”, fireworks get their colors from CHEMISTRY! In addition to the chemicals necessary for their controlled explosions, fireworks contain specific metal salts that dictate the colors we see when they go off (like copper salts for blue, calcium salts for orange, and barium salts for green!)
This glitter & bokeh shot has us ready for those upcoming Holiday Parties! While the whole image feels lively and energetic, the color scheme is surprisingly subdued without that bright, hot blue (as you can tell with these swatches). Follow us on our Instagram account @mancecreative to beautify your feed with more daily color inspo and see some of our latest client work!

The next color in our Design Tips: Color Themes series is our personal favorite; GREEN! Okay, maybe we’re a little bias, but there’s a good reason our Creative Director [Michael Mance] chose a monochromatic green color palette for Mance Creative. “Men tend to like cooler colors while women tend to like warmer colors. The color that they both agree on is green.” So, green was chosen to appeal to the widest possible audience. In addition to being equally eye-catching regardless of gender, green communicates balance, freshness, and innovation — All qualities we … Read More
Did you know that the Pantone color of the year is Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray? Yellow symbolizes happiness while Gray stands for strength and a solid foundation. These two colors combined give us the feeling of HOPE this year.

Simple color palettes are nice, but a more complex palette can add serious SPICE! Our team loves the muted tones found in this colorful collage of exotic spices. What makes it work? Warmed-up reds + greens (opposites on the color spectrum) harmonize with the sandy gold and beige, while cool gray adds both contrast and depth. Which color is your fav?
