I'm synesthetic, specifically the grapheme-color type, which means things like numbers, words, and letters have colors and shapes to me. For example, the name Amy is red and light pink in my brain, definitely not green or purple. The number 9 is also bright lemon color, which is similar to the number 5, a citrus orange.
I often use my synesthesia as inspiration for making color palettes, since often times, I see multiple colors inside a single word. My inspiration also comes from music since I play the piano and viola.
Thank you for visiting my profile, although I am not active very often. :)
