Q&A

I knew pretty early on that I wanted to take my obsession with Vaporwave and bring it to life. Vaporwave is basically an appropriation of 80s-90s internet culture. I grew up in the 90s making websites on geocities using stuff that looks like the whole Vaporwave aesthetic and it influences a lot of my design choices now (think kitsch, tacky and in your face). Crown had four colours that really suited this style: Lavender cupcake, Peek-a-boo Blue (a vivid sky blue), Rebel (a charcoal dark grey) and clay white.

Lavender Cupcake and Peek-a-boo blue worked so well together. The ombre effect was exactly what I had in mind. They’re reminiscent of acid 90s colours and were similar enough in tone to create a blended look. The Clay white and Rebel are perfect for creating a grid. I always like to mix in some neutral colours to really ‘earth’ a colour palette, even if it’s as in your face as Lavender and sky blue!
