About

This postcard project catalogues the particular quality of light and colour experienced in the Irish landscape in a unique compendium of colour palettes for Ireland. It's time to celebrate not just the green but the grey too and everything in between.

Let these colour samples inspire your next design project, with palettes that harmonise with, and evoke, Irish surroundings.

Initiated by Irish visual artist Paula Barrett. All images are her originals.
