Known for her use of extremely bright and vibrant colors, Lisa frank, the American children’s artist, has a unmistakable color palette. Her nearly iconic shiny illustrations featuring characters like unicorns, dancing bears and young girls have had a large impact in popular culture.
Her products heavily utilize bright rainbow colors and especially the color purple. You can see the use of these throughout the history of her company from the original stickers that launched her into popularity to the still popular school supplies.
The Lisa Frank, Inc. headquarters has had many homes and currently resides in a Arizona and has big hearts, stars, and music notes in the classic Frank colors decorating the side of the building.
You can’t miss it! It has got to be the only building in town with bright hearts, stars and music notes all over the side of it!
Regardless of one’s personal opinion of her work and color choices, like all those boys with cooties, she has certainly had a great impact on those who came of age in the 90’s. The impact of her vibrant color palettes is already beginning to be seen and will only continue to grow as those artists & designers who grew up seeing frank’s color use develop their own color styles.
