A Colourful Design in Movement

Colour is at the basis of visual communication at large - from arts and media to the more mundane, either used randomly, or to create an ambience, a pattern, a symbol, convey a message or reinforce brand identity. Here each of the following two colour-strong images has tickled Mirabelle's fancy for a reason; the first one for its symbolic rigid static geometric stance, whereas the other - by contrast - for its movement, fluidity and vibrancy.
