Ingrid Sundberg, a writer and illustrator whose young adult novel All We Left Behind will be released in Fall 2015, has created a “color thesaurus.”
Sundberg posted the twelve images on her blog (the one for red is embedded above); she feels that employing this tool allows her to add specificity to her writing. In an interview with Bored Panda, she reveals that many of her blog followers have utilized it for their own work.
Sundberg explained why she made this project: “This was something I made for myself based on color words I liked and the colors the words evoked for me. I use it all the time when I write. It really helps in revision as I try to make my work fresh and vibrant.”
