The challenge was

Create a Design Using JUST Primary Colors!

Nothing basic about the basics!

Time to celebrate the three colors that make everything possible: Red, Yellow, & Blue (+Black)! Create a design with the primary goal (get it?) of celebrating the big three. After all, without them would Keith Haring's art have the same bright vibes? Would pop art lose some of its pop? Would Piet Mondrian have EVER picked up a paintbrush? It can be minimal, maximal, hand lettering, cartoonish, abstract a la Mondrian, anthropomorphizing these colors - whatever you like! It just must feature Red, Yellow, and Blue and ONLY these three (...+Black & White).

A little color palette can have a big impact. See what you can do with a minimal palette for maximum inspiration!
