Orange Crush

Look no further than the catchy brand name on a bottle of a familiar soft drink for this week’s colour inspiration.  Its a crush on all things orange, vibrant and zesty, a punch of colour that instantly perks up and revives all that it surrounds.  Flamboyant in personality and appearance, orange is a colour that starts and ends our days as an intense glow on the horizon. 

Orange Crush was first introduced to the North American market in 1916.  Instantly a hit, and standing well apart from its competition with a refreshing taste and lively jolt of colour. 
Surprisingly, the exclusive formula originally included real pulp added to each bottle for a ‘fresh squeezed’ look. 
The process of extracting juice from the orange was known as ‘crush’ and now almost a century later the name carries on.
