The Colours of Liverpool - Print and Homeware Range for Tate
Print and homeware range designed by Dorothy for Tate Galleries and available to buy exclusively from Tate Liverpool gallery store and Tate Online.
Our colour chart, first launched in Spring 2018, is made up from the names of 66 people, places and things that help make Liverpool the most vibrant city we know (and one we are proud to call our home).
The swatch features colour themed landmarks (Bluecoat, Black-E), street names (Lime Street, Brownlow Hill), musicians (Cilla Black, Holly Johnson), bands (China Crisis, Half Man Half Biscuit, The Coral), song titles (The Killing Moon, Story of the Blues), clubs (The Cavern, Cream) and football teams (The Reds, The Blues).
The range makes numerous references to The Beatles (Yellow Submarine, The White Album, Mean Mr. Mustard, Strawberry Fields Forever, The Grapes) but also celebrates the city's current burgeoning creative and independent scene (Forest Swords, Stealing Sheep, Baltic Triangle, Camp and Furnace, Kazimier Garden, Invisible Wind Factory).
The range has recently been expanded to also include The Colours of London and The Colours of St Ives.
