The Palette Project #5: Confederation Bridge

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. Canada is huge-- there's no avoiding that. Connecting place to place can sometimes be a challenge. PEI, nestled off the mainland of Canada in the Maritimes, used to only be accessible by ferry until 1997. The Confederation Bridge replaced the ferries and covers the entire 12.9km span of the Northumberland Strait that flows between PEI and New Brunswick. Crossing the...

This is another edition of our Palette Project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. This week we're headed to the Nation's capital!

Curving through the Canada/USA boarder, the Horseshoe falls is the largest of the three waterfalls that spill down the end of the Niagara Gorge.  It is one of those natural wonders that you hear before you see it-- the entire town of Niagara Falls is filled...

The Palette Project #1: Jack Poole Plaza

Today marks the first day of our Palette Project!  It all started like this: back in April, we collaborated with our friend Heather Ross to host a workshop on colour. We had a great time discussing colour palettes, why some things work and others don't, and making palettes of our own. One take-away from that workshop was that inspiration is quite literally everywhere—but choosing what colours to use can be tricky...
