The Desert Palette is inspired by the Deserts around the world and the countries and cultures in which they reside. All colours are named after either a country, colour, plant or animal in these deserts, and some names even hold the palette's meaning within itself.
Morocco: Morocco is partially inhabited by a desert, namely Sahara. We took the colour most common in the Sahara desert in Morocco and added it to our palette.
Oman: Oman resides in a desert itself. One of the colours that spoke to us the most is represented in the palette.
Dhabab: The people that reside in the middle east reside in desert or desertious areas as well. Dhabab is Arabic for gold (ذهب).
Kalahari: The Kalahari Desert is a large semi-arid sandy savanna in Southern Africa extending for 900,000 square kilometres, covering much of Botswana, parts of Namibia and regions of South Africa. We named this colour after the desert, because the colour was very comon in the Kalahari desert.
Namibia: Namibia is partially inhabited by the Kalahari desert. In this region of the Kalahari desert, this colour spoke to us the most and we felt this colour was representative for the Kalahari desert in Namibia.
Nevada: Nevada is largely desert and semi-arid, much of it within the Great Basin in the United States. This colour is reflected throughout the desert in Nevada, which is where this colour got its inspiration.
Sahara: One of the world's most famous deserts. Mainly found in Northern Africa, the Sahara desert is known for its perfect sand textures and amazing orange-ish colours.
Arizona: The Sonoran Desert is a North American desert which covers large parts of the Southwestern United States in Arizona and California and of Northwestern Mexico in Sonora, Baja California, and Baja California Sur. We picked the part of the desert in Arizona because of its gorgeous colour scheme.
Gobi:The Gobi Desert is a vast, arid region in northern China and southern Mongolia. It's known for its dunes, mountains and rare animals such as snow leopards and Bactrian camels. In the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park, the Khongoryn Els sand dunes are said to sing when the wind blows. We chose the colour most commonly found in this desert and named it Gobi.
