The top colour trends of 2014

We're all creative people, and no one likes to follow trends. At the same time, though, it's good to know what they are. But how do you decidewhether something is a trend or not?

When it comes to colour trends, stock image library Shutterstock's answer to that question is: by analysing the data. Using data from customer downloads from its collection of 40 million images, it's come up with what it considers some pretty conclusive results.

They've presented these results in the form of an infographic, which you can check out below. Click on the image to see a high-res version.
