Last year, I completed a Cert II in floristry. It was another of those things that I never thought I’d do, but as my kids went to school, I wanted to learn a new skill, and TAFE was right by my house and at just the right hours… I met some amazing people, learned all abo
ut a job I was certain I couldn’t do because “I’m not artsy enough”, and most importantly started learning about colour.
Colour has meaning and makes you feel things. It
makes customers feel at ease or anxious. It can take your brand from run-of-the-mill to eye catching. Now that I’m studying graphic design with the goal of creating better branding, content and logos for my clients, I’m using the same colour principles that I learned in floristry. It is amazing how things come back around.
As a bonus, I was cleaning up my instagram and deleted my old floristry account, but I’m in love with the pictures and they remind me of such a fun, creative time that I will share them here. Enjoy!
