Color Collective was created by Lauren Wager in January 2010 as an online color resource for designers. The color palettes are based on the work of various designers, artists, and photographers that Lauren is inspired by. Color Collective has been seen on top blogs such as Design*Sponge, Refinery29, Apartment Therapy, Design for Mankind, Smashing Magazine and The Huffington Post. Lauren’s blog has also been featured in five issues of Lucky Magazine, and Joy Cho’s second book, Blog, Inc.
Lauren previously worked as a Color Designer and Social Media Designer at the home office of Bath & Body Works. She lives in Columbus, Ohio where she enjoys spending time with her family, collecting rocks, searching endlessly for the best bloody mary, and (of course) obsessing over color. Her book, Palette Perfect, is based off Color Collective and was published by Promopress Editions in Spring 2018.
