Palette 07: Monotone Collection




It is a difficult brief to create a design utilising only a single colour, one that relies heavily on a designer’s skill at composition, use of materials and special effects. While some leap at the challenge to create a noteworthy impact with the least amount of noise, relying on the basics of good design to complement the colour choice, others face budgetary constraints and must elicit the best possible outcome from limited resources. This volume exhibits the most striking examples of monochrome branding from recent years.
