Orange and Purple Map

March 5th, 2012

You learn something new every day. Like the idea that orange and purple might look good together on a map. Here’s the map I saw this color scheme on, hanging from the rafters at a local grocery store:

And those colors actually do work together, especially in the context of a grocery store where there isn’t a lot of purple about the place. Unfortunately, the picture didn’t turn out too well, but you get the idea. It’s mostly white, dark purple, medium orange, and a tiny splash of green in Africa. So there’s some color inspiration for your day!
