One of my personal faves when it comes to visual inspiration is the uber-talented Josef Albers. He was a visual artist, teacher, poet, designer, typographer, and theorist working from the 1920s-1970s. Best known as a visual artist, his "Homage to a square" series helped lead the way for the minimalists a decade later.
Aside from cultivating a pleasantly minimalist aesthetic, he rigorously pursued the infinite possibilities of color. This exploration dissected how the same color can look drastically different when placed next to (or on top of) other colors.
The impact of Josef Albers' work in color can be seen in many products and art prints available in the shop this summer. Click here to view the products above, or take a scroll through our art prints section to see the plethora of influences.
You can also download the "Interaction of Color" app to your smartphone here. It's super fun to play with. There's also a book - if you're feeling lo-fi. — anna
