Contemporary Lingo & Colour Charts

Born from a love of paint charts and a response to how a virus affected our vocabulary, Colourful Language is about our connection with colour and our shared experiences. 

“Early in the first lockdown it occurred to me that much of the language we were all using ​sounded like fancy paint colours; ‘Furlough’ ,’Isolation’ , ’Distance’. The seed of an idea was planted.

Here we all are, months later, adapting, evolving and finding our way.
Over the last year the project has morphed and grown as well, through conversations and playfulness. As our collective reality changes and adjusts I hope this project prompts discussion and reflection, instigates a feeling of connection, or simply brings a little colour and humour into our lives." Lara Bowen, maker of Colourful Language.
