Trend Watch: Ice Cream & Pastel Design

I scream, you scream, we all scream for pastel design! Sweet and a little sinful, this delicious color scheme has designers everywhere with heart emoji eyes.

Pastel colors come from the traditional medium of pastels. They’re usually soft and soothing in tone because of their low saturation and subdued colors.

Also inspired by some of the best foods on the planet, pastel design flirts with that playful side in all of us. Some of our favorite colors include pink, baby blue, and light violet to name a few.

Today we’ll discuss one of the sweetest trends to hit the design industry: ice cream and pastel design . Let’s see what we love about this trend and go over a few of our favorite resources.
