Color Leap: Journey through Time to See the Color Palettes of History

Color Leap is one of my favourite all-time colour websites for colour inspiration as it’s not just a random collection of pretty colours, but instead each color palette is based on a certain time in history

Color Leap is a handcrafted collection of 180 color palettes that showcase colors used throughout 12 distinct eras in history, covering 4000 years.

Each palette was created by sampling pieces of artwork from the time period. Every color can be copied with a single click and used in your own project.

The adverts and posters from the 1900’s through to the 1950’s are a joy in themselves to view, so being able to then pick up a colour palette from each example and then save it as favourite to use in your own designs.

Much like the previous post by Canva: a massive collection of 100 colour palettes,  you can use the palettes available in Colour Leap to influence your next logo, or graphic design project.

Here’s a few examples of images and colours from the 1900’s and also the 1950’s:
