Quarantine Summer

Listen, this may not be the summer we all dreamed of with corona virus and all, but there are still plenty of ways to make the most of your footage! If you’re stuck at home, it might be time to finally use that footage that has been collecting dust on your phone.

Some ideas to get you started: try creating a slideshow video of your last vacation or create a video montage of all of your family’s trip’s over the years to send to loved ones during this difficult time.

For an exhaustive list of how to put your footage to good use check out this post.

Summer Color Trends

Summer greens: the colors of the sea have been showing up everywhere from runways, to cell phone covers. But let’s be honest, has this hue ever disappointed?

Sunshine yellow: this bold yellow started in spring, and looks to be carrying over into feeds for summer. Pair this energetic color with a complementary blue hue.

Blue hues: nantucket color palettes have dominated pinterest since inception, but this summer the calming hues are showing up in houses all over the globe as we try to destress during the pandemic.

Summer sunset: if this doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what does!

Sherbets: sherbet colors are taking the gram by storm! You’ll see grids full of color mapped sherbet photos by brands and bloggers alike.

Pastels: similar to sherbets, but a little more bold these colors are showing up in hand drawn animations, gifs, videos and more – just in time for summer!

Summer Style

Looking to add some flair to your video? Our summer style is festive, fun, and created especially for summer! The style’s features include: splashing waves, turquoise hues, and sunbeams. Oh, and remember those sherbet colors we talked about? There are plenty of those to go around too.
