For some reason, I didn’t think I needed a new Color Coach, only the five 2013-2015 In Color Cards. If I had given this some thought, however, I would have realized that the old Color Coach used color combinations with retiring colors. Not very helpful! And so I added the new Coach to an order — and there it is, above.
It’s not just a useful tool, it’s plain fun to fool around with. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fanned it out like this just to delight in the palette. And of course I use its suggested combos regularly, especially when I seem to be stuck. Every color has two combos (they used to be called the Creative Combination and the Sweet Set). Try it for yourself!
