Peach Fuzz is undeniably charming, embodying a gentle and approachable vibe. However, its practicality in design is somewhat limited. The challenge lies in finding complementary colours that enhance rather than clash with its warm undertones. Unlike some other Pantone Colours of the Year, Peach Fuzz doesn’t seamlessly integrate into a broad spectrum of palettes. This restricts its usage, often relegating it to a standalone role with the support of classic blacks and whites.
One notable hurdle in working with Peach Fuzz is its compatibility with text. As a designer, legibility is paramount, and this delicate colour poses challenges when paired with traditional white text creating unreadable and visually jarring combinations. To maintain the soft and friendly aesthetic, owe would then look to the opposite – black text, but this introduces a stark contrast that contradicts the intended vibe. So instead we would be limited to a subtle grey, creating a balance that complements Peach Fuzz without compromising readability.
